[Original] A three-alarm fire in West Kensington has disrupted SEPTA bus and rail service.

CBS Philly reports:

The fire started around 5am in a two story building near the York-Dauphin SEPTA station.

Firefighters responding to the two alarm fire were having hydrant problems and trouble getting water to the building, prompting water department officials to respond as well.

SEPTA’s York-Dauphin Station is out of service, and SEPTA is running buses between Huntingdon and Berks along the Market Frankford Line until further notice.

SEPTA Bus Routes 3, 14, 15B, 17, 48, 54, 58 and 60 are experiencing delays due to buses being used for Market-Frankford Line shuttling.
