An unidentified man is being labeled a hero after cell phone video emerged showed him running toward the area of a burning house and saving a stranger. 

A video shot by California woman Beth Lederach during a house fire in Fresno, California, shows a panicked scene in which bystanders realize there's still a man trapped on the property. Then out of nowhere, a man comes rushing out carrying Robert Wells, 73, who said he was caught in a daze in the backyard until help materialized. Watch the rescue below:

The Good Samaritan remains unidentified, but Wells' family wants him to know how grateful they are for his rescue. 

"If it wasn't for him, I'm not sure my dad would've gotten out OK,'' Wells' daughter, Roberta Denise Francis, told TODAY.
