An Evansville Police Department body camera captured footage of a man being evacuated as flames were nearing his home.

The three minute clip shows neighbors, a police officer and a firefighter helping Fred Cook out of his house in the 800 block of Line Street in downtown Evansville around 8 p.m. Thursday night.

Two homes to the left of Cook’s home were severely damaged in the blaze and were demolished Friday. Cook’s house will likely be demolished in a few days.

Officials say the fire appears to be suspicious.  No one was in the home where the fire originated. No injuries were reported.
