Yesterday afternoon we saw some amazing video out of Houston, a massive fire engulfed a five-story apartment building that was under construction. Now, we're seeing footage of an incredible rescue as a worker dangled from a ledge, trying to escape the inferno that was quickly spreading to the whole structure.

The worker is OK, but only because a fire truck arrived in the nick of time. Just seconds after the man was rescued, part of the building collapsed.

The $50 million building was destroyed, but no one was injured. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. 

UPDATE, 2:45p ET: On The Real Story, Gretchen Carlson spoke to the brave firefighter who was on the ladder, Houston Fire Department Senior Captain Brad Hawthorne. Watch the full interview and dramatic rescue above!
