By Chase Snider. CREATED Mar 25, 2014

A massive five-alarm fire ripped through a Houston suburb on Tuesday afternoon. More than 200 firefighters were called to the scene of the luxury apartments that were under construction according to KHOU.

No injuries were reported, but officials did have to rescue a construction worker from a third story balcony according to the Houston Fire Department.

The dramatic video below shows part of the building collapsing just seconds after the man was pulled on to a ladder truck.
