UPDATE: Man Jumps From Burning House

A 23 year old male jumped from a second story window to escape a morning fire in Alaiedon Township. He is being treated for smoke inhalation. The house had four tenants, but three of them were away from the residence at the time of the fire. A dog belonging to a resident also died in the fire.
