12 people displaced following row house fire in Ogontz

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A row house fire in the Ogontz section of Philadelphia has left 12 people displaced Sunday morning.

The fire broke out around 3:15 a.m. on the 6100 block of Old York Road.

Firefighters said when they arrived flames were shooting from the second floor of a house in the middle of the row.

Fire burned through the roof and spread to neighboring homes.

Officials said the fire was brought under control around 4 a.m., but crews remained on the scene battling hot spots.

There was no reports of any injuries and no word on what might have sparked the blaze.

At least a dozen residents have been displaced by the fire.

A SEPTA bus was brought in so those displaced did not have to wait in the cold.
