A woman was killed in a Strawberry Mansion house fire early Tuesday morning, fire officials said.
Fire crews were dispatched to a house on the 1900 block of North Stanley Street at 8:56 a.m., said Executive Chief Richard Davison of the Philadelphia Fire Department.
Firefighters saw light smoke on the second floor and had the fire under control by 9:10 a.m., he said.
One woman died in the fire, Davison said, and a man was taken to the hospital.
Deputy Commissioner Derrick Sawyer told reporters at the scene there were two mounted smoke alarms in the house, but neither was working.
