WATCH: Firefighters save infant, mother

A firefighter’s helmet camera captured a dramatic rescue.

It happened early Saturday morning when firefighters in Fresno, California were called to a two-story apartment complex. Shortly after they arrived, they discovered a mother and her infant trapped inside a second story apartment filled with smoke.

You can see on a firefighter’s helmet cam as he climbs a ladder to the second story window, takes the child from its mother and then lowers the infant to another firefighter.

Crews also rescued the mom and six other adults.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.

The complex owner thinks a homeless person started the fire in a stairwell. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
