Fire officials in Kansas say a man ran into his home as it was engulfed in flames — to save his Xbox.

In the middle of the night, the unnamed man woke up to find himself within a fire caused by a broken electrical junction box, a local station reported. The man ran outside but then turned around when he realized his gaming system was left behind.
