HOUSTON—A Comcast employee made a daring rescue when he saved two women and a cat from an apartment fire Friday morning.

The fire began in the kitchen of an apartment on Hillcroft at Clarewood around 10 a.m. Two women were in the residence at the time.

A cable repair man named Russell Henderson was conveniently near the location when it started and was able to coax one woman off the stairwell and use his ladder to rescue the other woman off the apartment balcony.

Around 80 firefighters arrived on the scene and extinguished the flames around 10:30 a.m.

Both women were sent to the hospital for smoke inhalation and are expected to be fine.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
