A man died and two others were injured in a Southwest Philadelphia house fire late Sunday, officials said.
The 11:30 blaze erupted in a property on the 1200 block of South 46th Street. Firefighters on Monday did not release the identity of the deceased.
A neighbor, Lola Smith, 63, said she fell asleep Sunday night with the TV on and awoke about midnight to three loud knocks on her front door. A police officer and a neighbor told her there was a fire next door and rushed her and her brother, who has special needs and was upstairs, outside and onto the street, she said.
