Police investigate car fire in North Philadelphia

- Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a car fire in North Philadelphia.

You can see what’s left of the Ford Focus near 18th and Dauphin, near Temple University in North Philadelphia. 

It happened at about 5:20am. A witness told FOX 29’s Lauren Johnson she woke up to a loud explosion, and then saw bright red lights and lots of smoke. 

For now, police are saying, it's being investigated as a fire, not as a bombing. The 43-year-old victim was able to go to neighbors for help before being rushed to Temple University Hospital.
