Fire Ravages Northeast Philadelphia Pizza Shop, Garage

Fire ravaged a Northeast Philadelphia pizza shop and a nearby garage Tuesday night, and officials are trying to determine what started the fast-moving blaze.

Flames erupted at Non-Stop Pizza, near the intersection of Magee Avenue and Hegerman Street in Tacony, after 11 p.m. Video from the scene shows flames leaping from the fully engulfed building.

Firefighters put the fire out, but not before it destroyed the pizza shop and ravaged a nearby garage. Only the burned-out shop and garage remained when NBC10's Matt DeLucia visited the scene Wednesday morning.

It's unclear what the garage was storing, if anything.

There were also apartments above the pizza shop, but everyone escaped from the building safely, officials said.

Fire investigators are working to determine what sparked the fire. PECO crews arrived Wednesday morning to cut power lines to the building.
