Amid the effects of Sandy, Philadelphia firefighters battled a two-alarm house fire in the city's East Oak Lane section.

It happened around 10:10 Monday evening on the 500 block of Independence Avenue.

A report came in that the fire broke out inside a three-story twin home.

Arriving crews were met with heavy flames coming from the third floor.

High winds gave firefighters trouble containing the blaze and a second alarm was struck.

The fire was placed under control around 1:00 Tuesday morning. No injuries were reported.

Still no word what sparked the blaze.
