Frankford blaze forces evacuation of 10

Posted: May 21, 2012

Philadelphia firefighters took two hours Sunday to control a stubborn blaze in a building that forced the evacuation of 10 people in the city’s Frankford section.

Firefighters were called to the scene in the 4400 block of Paul Street just before 11:30 a.m. and soon called in a second alarm. The fire was under control around 1:30 p.m.

Ten people were evacuated from an adjacent building and taken to a nearby church. No injuries were reported.

The fire remained under investigation.
