One person missing after fatal house fire in Modesto


"Naturally, I feel responsible," Roberts said.
 
Firefighters say access to the home was blocked.
 
"There was a lot of property outside of the residence that made it difficult for firefighters to get into the residence," Alan Ernst with the fire department said. "Property, materials, that had been accumulated probably over years of living in the residence."
 
Karen Nunes, a neighbor, watched it all unfold from across the street..
 
"You feel devastation. Like you can't help them," she said.
 
She said the man who died may have saved others in the house.
 
"He warned him that there was a fire,” Nunes said. “The guy who came out said ‘I believe he saved my life cause I think he got trapped back there.’"

 

The department confirmed one person was killed in the fire and another person was not home at the time of the fire.
