BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A Baton Rouge man was outside his mother's house in North Baton Rouge when all of a sudden it was on fire Friday afternoon. 

Arthur Bradford rushed inside the burning home to get his mother. He threw a blanket and knocked the fire down enough to get his mother to safety.

"Looked back and it was in flames, like something electrical had happened. So that's when I just tried to get her out the house," said Bradford. "It just happened out of the clear blue. It just so happened I was here. I thank God for that." 

Crews were called out to the 1600 block of North 39th Street and worked to to put out the fire.

Investigators are still sorting through what started the fire.
