Vacant House Fire Spreads; Woman Hurt

The fire broke out in a vacant North Philadelphia home early Tuesday morning and then spread to neighboring properties, injuring one woman, authorities said.

The blaze erupted in the empty house on the 2900 block of North 24th Street, near West Indiana Street, around 1:30 a.m and quickly moved to another adjacent, occupied home, officials said.

Crews rushed a woman, who lives in the neighboring residence, to a local hospital, where she is being treated for smoke inhalation and heart problems, authorities said.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
