Pictured is the aftermath of a fire at a residence at 973 MT Highway 2 West near Whitehall.

The early morning hours last Tuesday were not that unusual for Whitehall resident Bruce Hayes. Things would change in a heartbeat.

Bruce, who suffers from a back injury, could not sleep much like many other nights throughout the year. He decided to step outside to take a look at the night sky, and when he turned around he saw smoke coming from his residence located at 973 MT Highway 2 West.

He rushed inside and made sure his wife Tricia and dog Beasley got out of the house.

After this, Bruce said things got foggy and he doesn't remember much.
