Two separate mattress fires broke out overnight in two separate counties leaving at least one person hurt.

The first fire broke out around 1 a.m. on the second floor of an apartment building at 11th and Locust Streets in Center City Philadelphia.

No one was hurt and it took firefighters a short period of time to get the blaze under control.

Then around 3:30 a.m. a fire broke out in a rear bedroom of a home along the unit block of Maple Drive in Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County, Pa.

Heavy smoke could be seen pouring from the home.
