The watchful eye of a neighbor saved a Lubbock home from being destroyed by fire Wednesday night.
Two doors down from a home in the 100 Block of Avenue P, a neighbor noticed flames coming through the roof. He called police, and the Lubbock Fire Department arrived at around 8pm. No one was home at the time.
Officials believe the fire was started by an electrical short in the back of the house, but the fire remains under investigation.
