A tow truck driver helped rescue a woman from a house fire at Milton in Brisbane's west this afternoon.
The blaze badly damaged the house in Railway Terrace, which had a collection of artworks inside.
James Whimp says he was driving nearby when he noticed smoke.
"I ran down the back of the house to locate a ladder to get her down," he said.
"But I couldn't find one so I ran over to my truck and backed it down the driveway where two police officers, a paramedic and myself pulled her out of the window."
