CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Man rescued from burning building

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON, TX (WKOW) -- Strong wind fueled a huge fire at an apartment complex under construction in Houston, TX.     

It moved so fast, it trapped a construction worker on the third floor.

People in a building nearby caught his rescue on tape.

He was stuck on a deck as the flames got closer.

Eventually, he lowered himself to a deck one floor below and then a ladder truck comes to rescue him.

The Houston Fire Department says all of the other construction workers got out safely, and no one was hurt.
