When crews arrived at the home at 4234 Thunder Road (map), they reported heavy smoke coming from a bungalow style residence.
Crews have pulled out of the house and evacuated due to heavy fire conditions. Firefighters have surrounded the home for defensive operations. There are no hydrants in the area and a water tanker shuttle is underway.
Crew had lowered hose to him to pull him out but he saw the light from window and chose to exit on his own. #ottnews
