People running an illegal operation must have forgotten a valuable piece of advice — call before you dig. The mistake they made sent their operation up in flames.

The gas line erupted, starting a fire near the back of the home. Flames could be seen over the house.

Robert Smith, a neighbor, quickly jumped in to fight the flames.

"I went out with my hose, my little hose, and I soaked it down. I could feel the heat. It was intense," he said.

Fearing someone was trapped inside, firefighters searched the home.
