running from fire-Beth Lederach

A woman’s voice was heard in a panic as she recorded video while flames were shooting out of a home’s windows: “There’s a man in there!”

After a huge explosion, likely from a propane tank, the people who were trying to help all ran for cover, except one 49-year-old man wearing Los Angeles Dodgers cap. Tom Artiaga walked toward the now-raging fire.

He emerged minutes later carrying 73-year-old Robert Wells over his shoulder.

Just as quickly, Mr. Artiaga disappeared from the scene, not wanting any glory following his rescue. CNN found the man later and insisted on interviewing him.
