    Firefighters responded to a woman on fire on a Philadelphia street midday Monday.

    She was spotted on East Chelten Avenue near Kenyon Street in the Germantown neighborhood around 12:20 p.m. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the fire.

    The woman was transported to Temple University Hospital with undisclosed injuries, fire dispatchers said.

    Rayya Lioness, a witness, told NBC10 she and others helped put out the flames and stayed with the woman until police and firefighters arrived. Lioness said she didn't see any nearby structures that were on fire at the time and believes the woman either ran from an alley or a car. She also said she heard another witness mention the woman was set on fire though this has not been confirmed by police.

    The stretch of Chelten Avenue where the incident occurred features a string of businesses.
