A man jumped from a second story window after his home caught fire on Sunday in Lookout Valley.
Chattanooga firefighters said it happened at the corner of Beech Street and Tulip Avenue around 6:30 p.m.
When they arrived, firefighters said they found the man lying in the yard. He was taken to the hospital.
A woman who lives across the street said she was working in her yard when a neighbor ran to her, asking to use the phone to call 911.
"She kept saying the house is on fire, the house is on fire. And I was wondering if it was mine, you know. And then I looked up there and I saw the smoke," Margaret Brown, a neighbor said.
The woman who owns the home told Channel 3 that the man living there is her renter. She also said she does not have insurance on the house.
It's unclear what started the fire.
Staff members reported 28-year-old Raquel Spencer’s behavior to authorities as odd.
