Elderly man pulled from burning home dies

(WMC-TV) – The elderly man pulled from a burning home Monday evening has died.

Firefighters arrived to a home on Winwood Drive just before 6 p.m.  Flames were visible in the one story home.

Family tells WMC-TV that the man's grandson and friend ran back into the house to pull him out.  When they found him, he was not breathing.  79-year-old George Brack was taken to The MED where he later died.

It took fire crews about a half hour to knock down the flames.  Investigators are still working to determine what caused the fire and if the home had a working smoke detector. 

Six adults and four children are being helped by the Red Cross.
