UPDATE: Full service has been restored on the Market-Frankford El, SEPTA reports
PHILADELPHIA — A fire at an abandoned Philadelphia warehouse left one firefighter injured and disrupted public transit during the morning commute.
The fire was reported around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday at a four-story warehouse in the city’s Fishtown neighborhood. Firefighters needed nearly two hours to get the blaze under control.
Officials say one firefighter had to be taken to a hospital for injuries suffered in a fall. His injuries were not life-threatening.
Service on the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s Market-Frankford Elevated Line was disrupted by the fire. A SEPTA spokeswoman says delays are expected through the morning.
