LOS ANGELES, March 22 (UPI) -- Authorities in Los Angeles are crediting pro wrestler Chris Masters with helping rescue his mother from her burning home.

Los Angeles police said they responded to a report of a burglary in progress at Diane Mordetzky's home at 6:30 p.m. PDT Tuesday and the burglar, who had the woman trapped inside, threatened to light the home on fire if anyone came inside, KNBC-TV, Los Angeles, reported Friday.

The woman's son, Christopher Mordetzky, aka World Wrestling Entertainment performer Chris Masters, uprooted a bush and used it to smash out a window when the burglar followed through on the threat and lit a fire.

The smashed window allowed Mordetzky and police to rescue the mother.

The Mordetzkys and three police officers were treated for smoke inhalation.

The alleged burglar, whose name was not released, was placed under arrest.

"Pulled down a tree to bust my moms windows open and get her out of the house," Mordetzky wrote on his Twitter feed @ChrisMasters310. "Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Moms resting comfortably with me at my place."
