PHILADELPHIA -- A fire is ripping through a large Philadelphia apartment building, but firefighters say it has been evacuated and there are no reports of injuries.
Deputy Chief Willy Williams says light smoke was reported in the four-story building just after 2:30 p.m. Monday.
Flames have shot through the roof, and fire crew are attacking the flames from the outside. Smoke is billowing high into the air and can be seen from the city's downtown business district, about two miles away.
Williams says crews have gone through the building to get residents to safety, and there are no reports of injuries.
