Video shared by the Cobb fire department shows crews quickly attempting to extinguish the fire as others worked to help the man stuck inside. Hazy conditions due to the heavy smoke left firefighters who entered the home with nearly no visibility.
After crews inside were able to locate the man in an upstairs room, he was handed to another firefighter on a ladder and led out of the home through a window, the video appears to display.
The man rescued was the only person inside at the time of the blaze, fire officials said. He was taken to the hospital, but his condition was not released.
The preliminary investigation uncovered that the fire was caused by an electrical issue and led to heavy damage to the top floor of the house.
