Desiree Garrett was asleep in her home around 8:30 a.m. near the 900 block of N. 23rd when she heard a loud noise coming from her front door.

"I woke up to my door being tugged at. When I woke up, there was smoke engulfing the house. You couldn't see or breathe," she said.

Authorities are saying that the man inside of the burning home was taken to a local hospital with burn and smoke injuries.
