Man rescued from rubble of crumbling North Philadelphia rowhome

    A man was pulled from the rubble this morning after a North Philadelphia rowhouse began crumbling.

    Fox29 has video from the scene on the 1100-block of West Ontario Street where bricks fell from the house this morning. In it, you can see a missing exterior wall and exposed staircase and bedroom — the result of the pile of bricks that has spilled into the street.

    The other occupants of the house have been accounted for, and no one from neighboring properties has reported injuries.
