Dozens of residents were forced out of their homes and into the icy early Monday morning air as flames tore through the Overbrook Garden apartments in West Philadelphia. It took firefighters about five and a half hours to bring the flames under control. Two firefighters were hurt battling the blaze. Fire Commissioner Adam Thiel praised his department's quick response with making sure residents were out of the building.
