A Canton man miraculously made it out of his house Monday afternoon after a blaze ripped through the house.

The Canton Fire Department was dispatched to a home in the 1300 block of Heising Ct SW for reports of a fire at 12:19 p.m. Monday. When they arrived at the scene, they located a home surrounded by trees in flames.
