Firefighters say they fought the blaze at 128 Gale Drive in Decatur County for over an hour Monday afternoon (12/27) before they could put it out.
They say the occupant, Walter Clark, was in his room when he heard an 'explosion' and saw flames to the rear of the home as he was leaving.
Investigators say they don't yet know what caused the fire.
Clark says it looked like the flames started outside the house, then worked their way in.
