A grandmother was killed and a father and young children were injured after a large fire broke out in their Lower Chichester Township, Delaware County, home on Saturday morning. The large fire started around 7:30 a.m. on the 100 block of Fronefield Avenue. The mother, Shahara Martin, ran out of the house yelling for help while her husband, Ahmad Martin, tried to rescue their five children. Neighbor Nicholas Wells rushed to help saving the children. The grandmother, 62-year-old Doris Morgan who suffered from multiple sclerosis, could not be rescued in time. At times flames roared from the front of the end unit row home leaving it destroyed. The father was severely burned and is listed in critical but stable condition at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. Three of the children are also still in the hospital. Fire officials are still investigating a cause of the fire. Donations for the family are being accepted at the Lower Chichester Volunteer Fire Department at 1540 Huddell Avenue.

A SEPTA train smashed into a car parked on the tracks in Conshohocken late Saturday night. It happened just before midnight near the Riverwalk at Millennium apartment complex on Washington Street.
