NBC PHILADELPHIA: Flames broke out at Lorenzo’s and Sons Pizza on South Street (near 3rd) Wednesday morning. The one-alarm fire broke out around 10:25 a.m. at the pizza shop known for its mega slices, late-night hours and no nonsense ordering. One firefighter was taken to Hahnemann Hospital in stable condition with a leg injury, firefighters said. No other injuries were reported. Firefighters say it didn’t take long to bring the fire under control but damage was already done. The famous storefront sign had to be cut to allow ventilation. An NBC10 cameraman on the scene reports parts of the sign were obviously cut out. The pizza shop will be shut down for an unknown period of time. MORE
