An elderly woman was able to escape a burning home in Upper Darby overnight. The fire broke out about 12:15 a.m. on the unit block of Springton Road.

Exploding oxygen tanks inside the home complicated the fight against the fire, accelerating the flames through the building. However, fire crews were able to get the fire under control within a half hour.

The elderly woman was able to get out of the home uninjured.
