Dallas fire crews say a man jumped out of his second story apartment window after a fire broke out Friday morning.

The one-alarm fire started around 7:20 a.m. in the 1700 block of Hudspeth Avenue in Oak Cliff. 

Witnesses said they saw flames coming out of windows on both the first and second floors, and then saw a man jump out a window to safety.

"I heard screaming so I ran inside and I saw the place burning," Stephanie Rogers said. "I saw this man, he broke his ankle. They were helping carry him, so I helped carry him away from the apartment, away from the danger."

Fire crews said he broke his ankle and was taken to a nearby hospital. Another man was treated for minor injuries on the scene.

Fire investigators are on scene looking for a cause of the fire.
