CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a woman has been injured in a leap from a second-floor window to escape a fire in Cedar Rapids.

The fire was reported a little before noon on Thursday and was blamed on food left cooking on a stove.

Firefighters say the woman jumped from the window because she apparently thought there was no other way through the smoke and flames. She was taken to a hospital.
