Winter Weather Advisory 3-5'', Philly Schools Go Virtual; ATF Brings Resources to Fire Investigation
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Philadelphia area from 10 p.m. Thursday to 10 a.m. Friday. Snow could fall heavy at times overnight. It is possible to see 3-5 inches along the I-95 corridor. The Philadelphia School District announced that it will be moving to virtual learning on Friday, 1/7, due to the snow.

Federal resources are being used in the investigation into Wednesday's, 1/5, deadly fire in Fairmount. The initial investigation indicates that a child may have been playing with a lighter near a Christmas tree, according to a search warrant obtained by the DA.

The fire happened around 6:40 a.m. on the 800 block of North 23rd Street. Twelve people were killed, including 4 women, 5 girls, and 3 boys. The victims ages ranged from two-34. This was the deadliest single fire in the city since October 1901 when 22 were killed. The city said it took about 4 minutes from the first 911 call until the fire department arrived on scene. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Philadelphia Fire Department are working together to investigate the cause of the fire. The ATF has brought in additional equipment and personnel that specialize in fire origin and cause investigation. The Philadelphia Police Department and the Philadelphia Housing Authority are also investigating.

The PHA owns the building. It says that both apartment units were inspected last spring and that the smoke alarms were working at that time. Firefighters noted that no alarms were operable at the time of the fire. They also said that 8 people lived in Unit A on the first floors and 18 people lived in Unit B on the 2/3 floors. PHA said they were aware of 14 occupants in Unit B when it was inspected.
