    An auto body shop fire caused the partial closure of the busy Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia Friday.

    The blaze broke out around 8:45 a.m. at a business along Bennett Road near the Boulevard (Route 1) and quickly spread to three alarms, Philadelphia police said.

    When firefighters arrived, flames and smoke were shooting through the roof. It took around 90 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

    Police closed the northbound lanes of the Boulevard between Comly Road and Plaza Drive as firefighters had hoses on the road as they battled the fire nearby.

    The Boulevard opened again around 11:15 a.m.
