Deli in Delaware County destroyed by fire

    A fire destroyed a family business in Delaware County this morning just before 6:00 a.m.

    WPVI-TV reports the fire sparked on the 500 block of Yale Avenue, destroying the Countryside Deli.

    Fire crews arrived to find heavy smoke and flames, which WPVI-TV says were only made worse by a ruptured gas line inside of the building.

    The building also had an attached apartment with four people living inside. WPVI-TV says the four people managed to escape.
