Philadelphia firefighters battled flames shooting through the front door and roof at a four-alarm Philadelphia church fire Monday morning. Flames broke out around 9 a.m. in the basement of century-old Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church along Lansdowne Avenue near N 65th Street in the Overbrook section of Philadelphia and quickly engulfed the stone building. "Church fires are notoriously difficult to fight the fire, they have a lot of void spaces and fire can travel," said scene commander Robert Corrigan. Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the church, according to Philadelphia firefighters.
