At Least 13 People Have Been Killed In A Fire At A Housing Apartment In The US City Of Philadelphia.
Seven children were among those killed in the blaze, the deputy fire commissioner said, adding that the fire detectors in the building were ineffective. He said he had been on duty for 35 years and it was the most dangerous fire of his life. He said that 8 people saved their lives with their help and managed to get out of the building.
Officials say a severe fire broke out on the second floor of a three-story building and an investigation has been launched, with local Mayor Jim Kenney calling it the most tragic day in the city’s history.
