SMITHS STATION, AL (WTVM) -  A Smiths Station man is recovering after managing to get out of his burning home.

On Sunday night, firefighters were called to a mobile home in the 10,000 block of Lee Road 240 and found the trailer engulfed in flames and the resident, 34-year-old Jeremy Hildebrand, outside.

Hildebrand was air lifted to the Columbus Regional Medical Center and then transferred to the University of Alabama at Birmingham hospital with burns.

According to Lee County Sheriff's officials, firefighters were unable to pinpoint where the fire started so investigators with the Alabama Fire Marshal's Office are working to find a cause and origin.

Hildebrand is listed in fair condition.
