A Good Samaritan who risked his own life to pull people from a 'House of Horrors' is speaking out only to Action News.  The man, who was released from the hospital Tuesday night, was too afraid to be identified.  Police said the home on Lamb and Sherrill was intentionally set on fire to hide a homicide.
The interview was conducted in Spanish. 
"When he go inside," said a friend who was translating, "he say oh my god."
The man said he saw two women laying on the floor naked.  The head of both women was wrapped with duck tape.  They were burned beyond recognition. There was a baby feet away from the flames.  
Loved ones identify one of the victim's as 27 year-old Angelica Jimenez.  Another victim Jimenez's father Mario.  
"He say he cannot sleep," said the translator. 
Mario screamed for help twice but it was too late to rescue him.  
The man did save 3 people inside the home.  He said he ripped the duck tape from the woman's mouth and asked who was responsible for the crime.  
"The one woman say some men, some men," said the translator.
The critically injured victim's did not talk anymore.  
The baby was not harmed.
Police have released no motive or suspects.
