One person was injured in a Rhawnhurst apartment house fire early April 10. Capt. Clifford Gilliam said firefighters from Engine 18 were dispatched to the 8200 block of Roosevelt Boulevard at 1:11 a.m. and arrived there two minutes later to find flames coming from the basement of the three-story building.
He said firefighters got the blaze under control in 14 minutes, and one injured person was taken to a hospital. The fire’s cause is being investigated, he said. The Red Cross is housing one resident at the Red Cross House in West Philadelphia and arranged shelter for the resident’s pet. ••
