The fire had grown quickly to three alarms, billowing black smoke into the cold night air and interrupting rail service as firefighters battled the blaze.

SEPTA’s Route 36 trolley line was temporarily shut down in both directions along Woodland Avenue, between 49th Street and Island Avenue. Shuttle buses were running in its place.

Amtrak could not immediately be reached for comment.

Fire officials said no injuries were reported.
