An early-morning house fire in Frankford proved also to be a major hazard to the firefighters who were called to scene yesterday.
Three firefighters ended up at Temple University Hospital with non-life-threatening injures sustained while battling the 8:30 a.m. blaze at a three-story home in the 1100 block of Arrott Street.
A 41-year-old firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation; a 52-year-old was treated for burns on his ear and neck, and a third firefighter, whose age was not given, was hurt in a fall, according to the Fire Department.
A civilian was also treated at Temple for burn injures.
In an unrelated fire, two dozen apartments were destroyed by a three-alarm blaze that broke out at a Pottstown, Montgomery County, apartment complex at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
It took firefighters more than an hour to get control of that fire at the Wexford Apartments.
