Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A massive fire at a duplex in St. Paul, Minnesota was caught on cell phone video.

It's what happened next that has a family counting their blessings.

While recording the fire, Stephanie Luellen watched her friend run towards the flames. The man ran to the window, shoved the screen in, and pushed the blinds aside to find a panicked mother and her 7-month-old baby trapped inside.

The man grabbed the infant before helping the mother jump to safety.

"It just happened. I did it without even thinking. It wasn't a thought, it was just an action," said Richard Johann, who rescued the mother and child who were trapped in the fire.

Officials say the fire was intentionally set.

Witnesses in the neighborhood say they saw two kids playing with lighter fluid near the home the night before. No arrests have been made in connection to the fire.
