A house fire broke out earlier this morning on the 4600 block of Pilling Street in Frankford.

The Philadelphia Fire Department tweeted pictures of the blaze and said that 65 firefighters and 22 apparatus were at the scene.

Power will be temporarily cut on the block.

At approximately 11:36 a.m., the department got the fire under control.

Fire Capt. William Dixon confirmed to the Northeast Times there were no reported injuries.

The fire department responded to calls of a fire at a two-story twin dwelling where fire was sighted on the second floor and rear. Dixon said there may have been some interior collapse.

The cause for the fire has not yet been determined, and the investigation is still developing. The Northeast Times will update with further details.
