LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Investigators are still trying to piece together what caused the Christmas day fire that claimed the lives of a young married couple.

The fire started early Tuesday morning at a mobile home park off Boulder Highway near Sahara.

One neighbor just wishes he could have done more.

Bob Edgar lives across the street and says he did all he could to try and save his neighbors.

“So I took a shovel and I went through,” he said. “I just manpowered myself a hole through that wall.”

But the thick smoke knocked Edgar to the ground. Once firefighters got inside, it was too late.

The fire started underneath the trailer and spread into the bedroom where the couple was sleeping.

Investigators don't yet know what caused the fire but shared two theories with Edgar: a space heater or a cigarette.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
