ADRIAN TOWNSHIP, MI (Toledo News Now) -

Christmas cheer was spread in Adrian Township Tuesday, after Good Samaritans helped rescue a homeowner from a house fire.

The call came in just after 10 a.m. near Bent Oak Highway and Oakview Drive just north of the city limits.

Assistant Fire Chief Doug Betz says a man living there woke up choking on smoke, but before crews arrived, some people passing by took it upon themselves to save him. By placing a ladder up to a second-story window, the homeowner was able to climb out safely.

Several fire departments assisted because the area lacks fire hydrants and has well water. Teamwork from nine different departments helped contain the fire.

One firefighter was sent to the hospital with minor injuries. The homeowner was uninjured.

A cause is still under investigation.
