Watch at about 28 seconds in on the right side of the video. It happens fast ... you may need to rewind or enlarge.

A neighbor rolled video while a house burned nearby. As the Wausau Fire Department started to put its initial line into service, firefighters were drawn to Side D of the home. There, 20-year-old Houa Thao was coming out of a second-floor window. Firefighters gathered underneath him and caught the man. He was uninjured.

The man's three teenage sisters escaped before the arrival of firefighters.

Indications are the fire started around 1:00 PM in the kitchen of the home.

This is the second fire for the family in eight-years.
