PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Crews responded to a fire Christmas night that damaged two South Philadelphia rowhomes.

The blaze broke out around 8 p.m. on the 2500 block of South Percy Street.

At least one family, and possibly more were left without a home as a result of the fire. Ten total people — eight adults and two children — have been displaced.
