The fire broke out around 12:45 a.m. on the 2300 block of South Bucknell Street in South Philadelphia, where fire crews were met with heavy flames, Action News 6 ABC is reporting.

A firefighter was burned, but the extent of the injuries was not immediately known, NBC 10 reports.

The fire quickly spread to the second floor, where reports indicate a woman and her two children live.
