Philadelphia firefighters are investigating how an apartment fire that killed one man and injured another was started.

According to ABC 6, the fire severely damaged a three-story apartment building in Southwest Philadelphia on Sunday morning.

It took firefighters nearly an hour and a half to get the fire under control.

While some battled the fire, others pulled people to safety.

Officials say one man was taken to the hospital in critical condition and another died at the scene.

People told ABC 6 that they knew the man, who immigrated to the U.S. from Africa three years ago but did not know his name.
