An elderly man is safe after a passerby helped him out of his burning house.

Firefighters say 77-year-old John Hase was the only person home when his house caught fire on County Road Y just off of Highway 25 yesterday afternoon. The passerby was able to get him out of the house before firefighters could get there and they were both taken to the hospital as a precaution. The house is being considered a total loss.
