At least 12 people, including 8 children, killed in Philadelphia rowhouse fire, officials say – The Washington Post

Bill Richards, who has lived on the block for 24 years, told The Postthat he heard a woman yell around 6:45 a.m.: “Oh my God! Oh my God!” By the time he ran outside, said Richards, 74, he saw the smoke pouring out of the building and firefighters “squirting at the flames.” The retired schoolteacher said he remained concerned for one young man he knew who lived in the building, hoping he wasn’t there.
