Firefighters, police and rescue crews are on the scene of a fire in Center City where neighbors say a woman jumped from a window to save herself.

Neighbors told NBC10 that the 35-year-old woman was on the top floor of a building at 1704 S. 22nd Street when they heard her screaming.

They quickly jumped into rescue mode, grabbed a couch and moved it under the window.

The woman then leapt from the 2nd story window onto the couch.

She has been transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

No word on her condition.

The fire, which has been placed under control, broke out around noon Saturday.

It's unknown at this time what started the fire.
