Mystery man saves people trapped in burning salon

MARMORA, N.J. -- A stranger is being hailed a hero for saving people from a raging inferno in New Jersey over the weekend.

It happened around 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Chop Shop hair salon.

Fire officials say the blaze left multiple people trapped inside the building.

That's when, they say, a mystery man saw what was happening, grabbed a ladder and climbed to the second floor to rescue those trapped.

The business was destroyed.

There's still no word on what started the blaze.
