VIDEO: South Philly Building Collapse/Possible Explosion

Witnesses have described an explosion just before the collapse of two three row homes in South Philadelphia on the 400 block of Daly Street this morning, reports Fox29.

FOX 29’s Dave Schratwieser spoke to a witness at the scene who was half a block away and said, “It was definitely an explosion.” He reported hearing it, then looking out the window and seeing back of the building blown into the street.

Officials are saying that six eight people have been injured, including an infant struck by flying glass. Needless to say, it’s been a bad stretch for  Philadelphia’s structural integrity.
