  • Three people were hospitalized and 10 were displaced after an apartment fire in West Philadelphia early Monday morning, in which residents had to escape through windows, CBS 3 reported.
  • A hero who helped save children from the fire took a dig at Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor, who lost a fumble and dropped two passes during Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions, as he spoke to CBS 3 about the fire.
  • “I see a guy hanging out the window screaming that his kids were in there. My man just started throwing babies out the window. And we were catching them – unlike Agholor and all his mishaps,” Hakim Law told CBS 3.
  • The Eagles have lost two games at home in the last two weeks. Agholor made errors in both games and is getting dragged for it by Eagles fans across Philadelphia.
  • Law, who’s a former firefighter, told CBS 3 that he was walking past the building around 2 a.m. on Monday when he saw the flames. He helped firefighters move their ladder then jumped into action.
  • Monday morning’s fire was caused by an air conditioning unit, officials told CBS 3.
