South Philadelphia Row Home Catches Fire

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- A fire broke out early Tuesday morning in South Philadelphia. Firefighters were called to the 1500 block of McKean Street just after 1:30 a.m.

Eyewitness News spoke with neighbors who saw the flames raging from the two-story row home. 

"I was dead asleep," Brandon Borzell, who saw the fire, said. "And I heard people yelling."

"I just think we heard someone saying, 'Fire, it's on fire,'" Tom Weston, another eyewitness, said. "I stuck my head out, I saw flames coming out the first story across the street. It went from I didn't see anything, to a ball of flames, and both stories were totally engulfed."

Eyewitnesses tell CBS3 they saw everyone in the home, including two dogs, make it out safely.
