PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Firefighters caught a baby tossed to safety from a third-floor window as an early morning fire swept through a building that housed apartments and a business in Philadelphia’s Frankford section, injuring nine people.

Firefighters say five adults and four children are in stable condition.

Firefighters used ladders to help residents flee the flames around 4 a.m. Tuesday.

The Red Cross says 20 residents were displaced.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority had to halt train service on the Market-Frankford Line until firefighters brought the blaze under control.

The cause is under investigation.
