Three Hospitalized After Electrical Fire in PA High-Rise

According to a report from NBC10, residents of the River Park House condominiums in the Wynnefield Heights neighborhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, will be without power and water for at least the next five days after an electrical fire knocked out utilities at the complex.

Three people were treated and transported to a hospital by paramedics after fire erupted in the basement of the 22-floor high-rise around 9:15 p.m. Sunday, a Philadelphia Fire Department spokeswoman said.

The high-rise’s management has asked residents for patience while the utilities are fixed.

A shelter for displaced residents was opened by the American Red Cross and Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management at Universal Daroff Charter School at 56th and Vine streets in West Philadelphia.
