A witness captured a harrowing video of a flame-engulfed home in North Philadelphia in the moments before the fire department reportedly arrived at the scene on Sunday.

Seconds later a man runs out of the front door on the first floor, appearing in fair condition, as witnesses attempt to ask him if anyone else was in the home. reports fire crews arrived at the scene soon thereafter.


There is no word on the male victim's current condition or if anyone else was found in the home, however, an EMS official was said to have been treated for smoke inhalation.
