Warehouse Fire in Fishtown. A four-alarm fire at a warehouse in Fishtown has left one firefighter injured and caused SEPTA to warn that, “It’s going to be a rough morning.” Your commute on the El, the No. 15 trolley, or through the roads near the blaze at Front and Girard is going to be a struggle. SEPTA is running shuttle buses between the Huntingdon and Spring Garden Stations on the Market-Frankford Line. Good luck, you guys. []

Oh, and that 140 characters probably isn’t enough context to justify the use of a Hitler quote, regardless of its accuracy. [Deadspin]
