DECATUR, GA (CBS46) -

DeKalb County firefighters had to rescue a man from his apartment early Thursday morning after the Kingstown Apartments in Decatur caught on fire.

Several other residents had to be evacuated, and one of them noticed his neighbor being taken out on a stretcher.

"It looked pretty serious," said Delray Fuller. "It seemed like (he was trapped up there). But everyone else got out of the building, so I don't know if he meant to stay in or what, but it didn't seem like he should be able to sleep through all of the commotion that was going on."

A fire investigator on scene said the cause of the fire was still under investigation. It was not immediately clear how badly the fire victim was hurt.
