A man in California has become a hero after he walked into a burning home to rescue an elderly man trapped inside.

A woman caught the dramatic rescue on her cell phone.  On the video, you can hear the elderly man's daughter calling 911 to tell them that her dad was trapped inside.

The video shows a man calmly walking toward the house, entering the flames and carrying the elderly man out over his shoulder.

The rescuer was treated for smoke inhalation, but no one else was hurt in the fire.

The families who lived in the house lost their home.
