Investigators say a fire early Monday morning in the Strawberry Mansion section of Philadelphia was intentionally set. Rescuers were called out to the home in the 2300 block of North 26th Street just after 1:00 a.m.

The fire started in the back yard, investigators say, but the flames then ignited a combustible substance and expanded up to the second floor of the house.

No one was hurt, however the one person inside the home was taken for psychiatric treatment.

Investigators add there were no smoke detectors in the home.
