Construction Worker Miraculously Rescued From Apartment Complex Fire in Houston, Texas

A roaring five-alarm fire in Houston, Texas trapped a construction worker on a ledge on the top floor of an under-construction luxury apartment complex on March 25th. The unnamed worker was forced to carefully lower down to the ledge below in order to avoid the fire’s progress as the Houston Fire Department scrambled to save them. Firefighters finally reached the worker before the flames, but the wind-driven fire eventually reduced the complex to little more than ashes.
