Police are searching for the mystery hero who rescued a woman as flames ripped through her Coventry home yesterday.
Officers believe the good samaritan, who was driving a van, used a ladder to rescue the woman from a first floor bedroom at the house in Northumberland Road, Coventry, at about 9.30am.
But once the woman was brought to safety, the man drove off without giving his details to fire fighters who had been called to the scene.
The fire is now being treated as suspicious by West Midlands Police and West Midlands Fire Service, and officers are keen to trace the passer-by.
Anyone with information about the mystery man can contact police at Little Park Street station, Coventry, on 0845 113 5000.
