No one can escape the masterlock—not even a raging fire.
An uncle notified Masters that a neighbor had locked himself in his mother's Los Angeles home and threatened to burn the place down if anyone tried to come inside. After some negotiating, Masters decided to call the police.
It was at that point that the neighbor started setting the house on fire. But rather than waiting for someone else, Masters sprang into action to save his mother.
Masters pulled a tree from the ground and tossed it through a window. He, along with local police officers, were able to get Masters’ mother to safety.
Masters tweeted about the situation and provided photos of the burned house as well.

There is no information as to why the neighbor barricaded himself in mama Masters' home, but he is now under custody.
One thing's for sure, mama Masters must be very proud of her son.
