Woman jumps out of second-floor window to escape fire

- A Clayton County woman made a desperate and dramatic move to save herself from fire.

Fire officials say the woman was walking downstairs at her unit at Morrowood Townhouses on Trammel Road when she heard a crackling noise. It was fire, spreading through the first floor.  

Officials say the woman retreated to the second floor and jumped through a window, hitting the pavement below.  

Medics brought her to the hospital, where she is in stable condition. 

Neighbors evacuated the building and watched as fire crews extinguished the flames. They tell FOX 5 that management will help those with units damaged by fire and water find other places to stay on the property.  

Investigators are now working to find a cause for the fire.
