*** UPDATE ***
An anonymous hero is being credited with saving a man inside the home as well as his dogs.
A woman who was driving by spotted the smoke. She ran to a neighbor's home and got them to call 911; she didn't have a cell phone.
The woman then ran to the home and banged on the door. This gave the man and his dogs the time they needed to get out before the home was engulfed.
