Fire at Store Along Fabric Row in Queen Village

Skyforce10

Firefighters are called out to a fire along Fabric Row in the Queen Village section of Philadelphia.

The fabric store at 4th and Catherine is three stories, with apartments located above the shop.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control in less than 20 minutes.

No injuries have been reported. The Red Cross is helping two families displaced by that fire with financial assistance. One of those families is staying at the Red Cross House.

This fire is just one block away from where Philadelphia Fire captain Michael Goodwin died in April. Goodwin was on the roof of Jack B. Fabrics at 4th and Fitzwater, when the roof of the building collapsed, trapping him inside.

Goodwin was a 29-year veteran of the Philadelphia Fire Department.
