Man tries to put out house fire with garden hose

Charlotte, NC (WBTV) Man tries to put out house fire with garden hose.

   Three people were woken up in their north Charlotte home by their smoke detector, only to realize their house was on fire.

  
   The homeowner says he and two others ran outside, and tried to attack the flames with garden hoses for close to twenty minutes before calling firefighters.

   It took thirty firefighters to control the blaze, which they say started up in the attic.  Sammy Bumun, one of the men inside, says he believes it was the heating system which started the fire.  That system, he tells us, was serviced just about a week ago.
