EXCLUSIVE: Ridgway Family Saves Home From Fire

RIDGWAY, Colo. - Just after 1:00 p.m. this afternoon, a family from Ridgway discovered the field next to their home was on fire.

"Straight up, I'm in the shower, [Aunt] Mel comes knocking on the door saying there's a fire." said Bryce Harrison, who lives in the home.

Family, neighbors and anyone close by came to help fight the blaze with buckets, hoses and shovels.

"[I] didn't really have time to get clothes so, I had a shovel in one hand, my phone in another and tried to keep my towel on." said Harrison.

Harrison caught the whole thing on his phone. In the video above, you can watch his and his families efforts unfold.

The Ouray County Sheriff's office says they are compiling their report into the incident.
