The massive blaze trapped a Houston construction worker on the top balcony.

HOUSTON (PIX11) — Cellphone video captured the dramatic moment a construction worker was rescued from a massive apartment building fire in Texas.

The fire-alarm blaze erupted in a $50 million apartment complex in downtown Houston Tuesday.

A construction worker who was working on the yet-to-be completed building can be seen waving from the top balcony of the building, trapped as flames swirl behind him.

Firefighters were able to reach the man with a ladder mere moments before the building started to collapse.

Local news station KPRC reported that all other firefighters were accounted for and no one was injured.
