A BLAZE engulfed a North Ipswich home last night burning it to a shell, endangering neighbours and causing a power outage.
But the search is on for the true hero of the story, a teenage boy who eyewitnesses say courageously rescued a man from the burning house.
QFES Media said four crews attended the fire at 69 Pine Mountain Rd. Four crews converged on the fire at 10.15pm Tuesday night, finding the house fully engulfed.
According to eyewitness accounts a delivery van pulled into the driveway, stopped and sounded its horn to warn neighbours.
A teenage boy then jumped out of the van, ran inside and dragged a man from the burning building.
He was one of four in the van, which eyewitnesses have guessed were his father, brother and sister.
A contributed video shows ambulance staff and police assisting a shirtless man from a house on Pine Mountain Rd.
Pine Mountain Rd was cordoned off and power was out for some time until Energex crews switched it back on.
QFES media said the blaze was extinguished by 11.15pm and they left the scene with police taking over just after midnight.
Neighbours said they were concerned about the blaze leaping to their home and about the mental and physical health of the man involved in the blaze.
Queensland Police were unable to make comment.
