At least 100 firefighters battled a massive blaze early Saturday morning in Philadelphia's Bustleton section.

Flames broke out at about 2:30 am from the basement of an apartment building on the 2100 block of Benson Street.

The firefighters fought a two hour battle before bringing the flames under control. Septa busses were called in to provide temporary shelter from the cold for residents until the Red Cross could arrive.

A four alarm blaze ripped through the opposite side of this building on the first of this month.

No injuries have been reported in this latest fire.
