Fire crews from Stockton and San Joaquin County battled flames at a large home in the community of Morada, just northeast of Stockton, Thursday afternoon.
The fire was on Tudor Rose Glen. Neighbors discovered the fire and called 911.
One neighbor, retired volunteer firefighter Gordon Rupp, raced next door, knowing young residents were likely home.
"I went in twice, and got two people out," Rupp said. "They said there was no one else, but changed their mind, a 14 year old was inside. I had to re-enter the home, it was full of smoke, I was screaming and yelling, and one of them was in the shower. She didn't know what was going on."
The cause of the fire is under investigation. The house suffered major damage.
