Minivan catches fire on Philadelphia sidewalk. Gray Hall reports during Action News at 6 a.m. on January 12, 2019.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused a minivan to catch fire on a Philadelphia sidewalk.

It happened around 1 a.m. Saturday along the 2000 block of Allegheny Avenue.

The charred van was parked next to a building.

Fire crews got the fire under control quickly, but not before it did damage to a store.

Authorities say a man was inside the van at the time, but was not hurt.

Neighbors tell Action News the van had been parked in that spot for quite a while before the incident.
