One person was hospitalized after fire broke out inside a house in Philadelphia's Germantown section early Friday.

Firefighters were dispatched just before 2:30 a.m. to the 5000 block of Tacoma Street. They arrived to find heavy fire on the first floor of a three story attached home.

The home is reportedly vacant, but attached to an occupied home.

Firefighters report from the scene that there appears to have been a squatter in the home.

One person was transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center for treatment of unspecified injuries.

There is no word yet on what may have sparked the blaze.
