A man in Fresno, California, is being called a hero after he calmly walked into a roaring house fire and pulled another man to safety.

A bystander captured the scene on cellphone video Saturday as flames consumed the home. A woman can be heard calling: “Get my dad!” The rescuer walks into the home and, moments later, emerges with the woman’s father slung over his shoulder.

There was no word Sunday on the identity of the rescuer, pictured in the video in a blue baseball cap.
