Houston firefighters rescued a construction worker from a massive fire Tuesday, and YouTube user Karen Jones caught it all on video.

The man is seen waving for help from an upper balcony, where he is trapped. Firefighters reach him with a ladder just moments before the top story collapses.

The five-alarm fire engulfed a $50 million, 396-unit apartment complex in downtown Houston, just months from completion, The New York Daily News reports. No injuries were reported, and all construction workers are accounted for.
