A Wayne County Sheriff’s sergeant on road patrol helped firefighters rescue an Inkster man from a burning house early Tuesday.

Shortly before 8 a.m., Sgt. Phillip Migliaccio found the front of a home in the 3100 block of Moore “totally inflamed with smoke coming from the rear windows and side door,” the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

The sergeant found a 74-year-old man, who appeared disoriented and was standing near the side stairs. The man wanted to go back inside for his car keys but Migliaccio escorted him to the front yard.

After learning from him that another man was still inside the house, the sergeant relayed the information to Inkster firefighters as they arrived, the sheriff’s office said.

Firefighters removed a 45-year-old man and a dog from the residence.

That man was listed in stable condition Tuesday night at Detroit Receiving Hospital; the dog was not injured, sheriff’s officials said.
