As if Friday’s commute wasn’t bad enough.

With the roads in Philadelphia still a mess from Winter Storm Hercules, an All City cab caught on fire on Walnut Street on Friday afternoon.

The cab blazed along Rittenhouse Square as onlookers snapped photos. All City wasn’t able to offer an explanation for the fire, but they did indicate that there were no injuries.

    It seems like this place can’t catch a break! I am very familiar with the story of the suicide of Madison Holleran, who took a picture of Rittenhouse Square before jumping off a parking garage. I knew Madison personally and I miss her so much… it has been so hard on me and my community.
