A man escaped a fire in Philadelphia on Thursday night by scaling least 14 stories down a side of an apartment building, reports said.

Fire crews responded around 9:30 p.m. to reports that smoke was seen coming from the upper floors of a 19-story high-rise in West Philadelphia.

Officials said the fire originated in the trash chute on the first floor and traveled upward, causing heavy smoke to pour into the hallways on the top floors, Philadelphia’s WPVI-TV reported.

An unknown number of residents were taken away in ambulances. At least four residents and at least three police officers were treated for smoke inhalation, WPVI-TV reported. It was unclear as of Thursday evening if anyone died in the fire or if anyone suffered more serious injuries.

‘Person of interest’ in fatal shooting of off-duty Pittsburgh cop turns self in: police

A “person of interest” has surrendered in connection with the fatal shooting of an off-duty Pittsburgh police officer earlier this week

Authorities said Christian Bey was in custody on an unrelated charge, and was reportedly being questioned in the death of Officer Calvin Hall.

Hall, 36, was shot and killed in Homewood early Sunday morning after officers responded to a call regarding a man who was waving a gun, police said.

That suspect – identified as 44-year-old Douglas Watson Sr. – was arrested by authorities. But the arrest provoked an argument between relatives of Hall and friends of Watson, police said. Hall tried to deescalate the situation but was shot several times in the back at close range, Pittsburgh’s KDKA-TV reported.

13 Pa. police officers to be fired over offensive Facebook posts

Thirteen officers in Philadelphia will be fired following an investigation into racist and offensive Facebook posts, the city police commissioner announced on Thursday.

In a news conference on Thursday, Commissioner Richard Ross said the officers are on a 30-day suspension with intent to dismiss.

The department had placed a total of 72 officers on administrative leave in June after a nonprofit group published the results of a two-year review of personal Facebook posts or comments from officers in Philadelphia and seven other departments.

PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT PUTS 72 OFFICERS ON DESK DUTY AMID INVESTIGATION INTO ANTI-MUSLIM SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS

Ross said about 3,100 offensive or potentially offensive Facebook posts were identified and connected to 328 active-duty Philadelphia police officers, adding that some posts date back to 2010.

He said the posts “clearly advocated violence or death against any protected class such as ethnicity, national origin, sex, religion and race or any speech advocating or supporting crimes affecting the integrity, honesty or trustworthiness of the police department.”

Ross told reporters that all but three of the 72 Philadelphia officers currently on leave will face some form of discipline. Four officers will be suspended for 30 days, while the rest will face disciplinary action ranging from reprimands to a five-day suspension.

The posts included “anti-Islamic posts such as ‘death to Islam,’” as well as “references to African-Americans as thugs,” “encouragement of police brutality,” and “homophobic memes which in some cases suggest violence against transgender individuals,” according to Ross.

“I continue to be very disappointed and angered by these posts, many of which violate basic human decency,” Ross said on Thursday.

“We need to move past this ridiculous hate that has consumed this country and has done so for centuries.”

Ross said on June 28 nearly all of the 72 officers on administrative leave, who have not been identified, received the first in a series of trainings. The department is also looking at software that would track and audit officers’ social media posts.

NEARLY 2 DOZEN ST. LOUIS OFFICERS FLAGGED OVER ALLEGED ‘RACIALLY CHARGED SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS’

The president of the Philadelphia police union said the Fraternal Order of Police is disappointed that the officers will be terminated without due process, adding that “the overwhelming majority of our members serve this city with integrity and professionalism.”

After publication of the database, which allegedly included nearly 180 posts tied to Phoenix officers that disparage black people, Muslims and transgender people, the police chief moved some officers to “non-enforcement” assignments while the department investigates.

In St. Louis, the top prosecutor placed nearly two dozen city police officers on an exclusion list last month after learning about “racially charged social media posts of current and retired city police.” Those officers are not allowed to bring cases to her office.

Cosmetic surgeons’ billboard sparks debate over body shaming

Westlake Legal Group PHILLY Cosmetic surgeons' billboard sparks debate over body shaming fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/health/healthy-living fox news fnc/health fnc Bradford Betz article 5f111997-9261-5917-ae89-35d5df6361af

A Philadelphia billboard featuring a scantily clad woman has sparked outcry this week for what some residents regarded as body shaming.

The billboard, which says “Keeping Our Beaches Beautiful,” is an ad for the cosmetic surgery firm Gabay & Gottlieb. But some critics have asserted that the billboard implies non-“beautiful” people don’t belong on the beach.

Some people voiced their complaints to Philadelphia’s WPVI-TV.

BEBE REXHA IS NOT STANDING FOR YOUR BODY-SHAMING ON SOCIAL MEDIA

“Body shaming is disgusting,” one spectator reportedly wrote. “Keep our city beautiful, take down your billboard.”

Others told the station the billboard sent a negative message to young women.

Dr. Neil Gottlieb told the station that the ad was meant to be light-hearted and never intended to offend anyone.

He noted that the billboard had been put up a few times over the past year but hadn’t sparked any backlash.

Pennsylvania woman charged with DUI bites officer during arrest, prosecutors say

New Jersey prosecutors said a Pennsylvania woman has been charged with driving under the influence after she allegedly took off from police on Saturday, attacked multiple officers and even bit one in the leg as she was arrested.

A New Jersey State Park police officer said he’d tried to stop Jessica Hayes, 30, when she was leaving Island Beach State Park because she was going over 70 mph in a 35 mph zone.

The officer said Hayes “ignored commands to pull over and continued out of Island Beach State Park at a high rate of speed,” according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

PHILLY GIRL, 9, CRITICALLY INJURED AFTER LIGHTING FIREWORK INSIDE HOME, REPORT SAYS

Prosecutors said she continued to drive “reaching speeds of 60 miles per hour while weaving in and out of traffic.” The officer decided to stop pursuing her “due to the substantial risk of injury to the public.”

Later, Seaside Park Police were said to have spotted Hayes at a bank and questioned her.

BODIES OF MARRIED COUPLE PULLED FROM RIVER IN PENNSYLVANIA, CHILD FOUND IN CAR NEARBY: POLICE

Hayes, of Bensalem, Pennsylvania, a half hour from Philadelphia, allegedly “displayed signs of intoxication” at the bank, and officers conducted field sobriety tests.

However, once police tried to arrest her, she allegedly attacked two Seaside Park officers, causing minor injuries, and bit a New Jersey State Park police sergeant on his leg.

Prosecutors said it seemed the injured officers “will all be OK.”

“We are lucky no one else was injured by her reckless behavior on a very busy Saturday at the Jersey Shore,” Ocean County prosecutor Bradley Billhimer said.

It wasn’t clear whether Hayes had an attorney; a message left for her Saturday by The Associated Press wasn’t immediately returned.

Hayes was being evaluated at a local hospital and will be transported to the Ocean County Jail once she is medically cleared, according to prosecutors.

Hayes also was charged with eluding, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, obstructing the administration of law, and several motor vehicle violations.

Police in Pennsylvania had their hands full Saturday with a suspect who had to be arrested twice, according to reports.

Officers initially arrested Monica Nicole Christian, 31, after responding to reports of squatters in a neighborhood in Rochester Township, near Pittsburgh.

Police say Christian became violent with them during the arrest, WTAE-TV reported.

But once inside a police cruiser, the handcuffed Christian managed to climb through the cage separating the front and back seats – and then drive off in the police cruiser while the officer was gathering some items outside the vehicle, the Times of Rochester reported.

At some point the suspect slipped off the handcuffs, parked the vehicle and fled on foot, the report said.

But tips from neighbors helped police locate the suspect, according to WPXI-TV.

“Without their assistance, we would have had a hard time trying to track her down,” Sgt. Dawn Shane of the Rochester Police department told WTAE.

Christian was later seen on local television, sticking her tongue out at a news crew as she was escorted by law enforcement officers.

Authorities say the suspect was wanted in Texas for robbery.

Pennsylvania police in hours-long standoff with man standing on top of old blast furnace

Westlake Legal Group bethlehem-steelstacks-Google-Maps Pennsylvania police in hours-long standoff with man standing on top of old blast furnace fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc David Aaro article 399f08cf-f417-5b14-ab58-be00c5114198

A man has been perched atop an old blast furnace in Pennsylvania, hundreds of feet in the air for more than 17 hours as a police crisis team continues to talk him down on Saturday morning.

The unidentified man reportedly decided to climb up the large furnace in the SteelStacks campus in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on Friday night as people were getting ready to enjoy a free concert. Authorities canceled the show as well as another concert in the nearby ArtsQuest building.

The man has been seen shouting and raising his arms throughout the ongoing negotiations, according to The Morning Call.

The SteelStacks campus where the furnace is located has remained closed and Bethlehem police have asked the public to stay away from the area as emergency personnel works to resolve the situation.

Bethlehem police Chief, Mark DiLuzio, said officers were called to the area at 6:52 on Friday where they saw the man taking up position on a single steel beam, according to The Morning Call. They asked the public for help in identifying the man on Friday night, but as of now remained unsuccessful.

DiLuzio said officers tried to climb up the large furnace on Friday, eventually reaching a platform below where they attempted to converse with him.

Concertgoers had assembled on the nearby Levitt Pavilion lawn on Friday, as police walked through the crowd asking them to raise their hand if they knew who the man was.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” said concert attendee Nahum Molina.

It’s not clear why he decided to climb the furnace, but the Morning Call reported the man first appeared to be taking photos until he gained more attention from the crowds around him.

PHILADELPHIA MAN, NEIGHBORHOOD MOB BEATS CARJACKER TO DEATH AFTER SUSPECT TAKES OFF WITH 3 KIDS: COPS

“The more people looked at him, the more animated he became,” bystander Dave Gilfoil told the newspaper.

Photos were taken of the man on Saturday morning attempting to wave off a drone and his movements were reported as being lethargic and slow.

Another man climbed the same furnaces back in 2012, where he told police he did it to get a photo.

Two men dead after being pulled from manhole in Pennsylvania, reports say

Two men in Pennsylvania were pronounced dead Thursday afternoon after crews pulled them out of a manhole where they’d been working, according to reports.

Police had responded Thursday morning to an intersection in Aldan, Pa., which is about a half-hour drive from Philadelphia, after reports that the men were unconscious inside the manhole, officials told Fox 29.

They said the cause of death remained under investigation. “Gases and lack of oxygen are suspected,” Fox 29’s Chris O’Connell reported.

Philadelphia street sign honoring Patti LaBelle spelled incorrectly

The Philadelphia street sign recently presented to honor Patti LaBelle will be replaced this week after the city misspelled the singer’s name.

A stretch of Broad Street in LaBelle’s Pennsylvania hometown, between Locust and Spruce streets, was renamed “Patti LaBelle Way” during a ceremony Tuesday.

But the city’s Streets Department spelled the singer’s name incorrectly — with a lowercase “b” in her last name.

Deana Gamble, a city spokeswoman, told the Philadelphia Inquirer the city was aware of the error and had plans to fix the street sign this week. A sign that LaBelle autographed during the ceremony had the correct spelling.
