Crews responded to the 200 block of West Jersey Avenue for a fire in a 4-story building at approximately 7:18 p.m.

Upon arrival, firefighters quickly spotted and rescued a man on one of the building's fire escapes.

The rescued man was taken to an area hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation symptoms, according to Battalion Chief Water Clarke.
