A funeral was held on Monday, 6/27, for fallen Philadelphia firefighter Lt. Sean Williamson. 51-year-old Williamson was killed in action while fighting a fire at a pizzeria and residences on the 300 block of Indiana Avenue in the Fairhill neighborhood. The 3-story building collapsed after the fire was put out and killed Williamson while injuring five others. The services were held at Epiphany of Our Lord Church on Jackson St. in South Philadelphia. The casket was brought to church on the top of a fire truck in a large procession through streets lined with uniformed firefighters. The cause of the fire and the collapse are under investigation.

The burned body of man was found in East Mount Airy on Sunday afternoon, 6/26. It happened around 12:45 p.m. on the 200 block of E. Hortter Street near Musgrave Street. The discovery was made behind a residence at the location. The 31-year-old man's cause of death is not yet known, but he may have been shot. No arrests have been made.

The City of Philadelphia has painted the right bus lane the color 'red' on Chestnut Street between Broad and 2nd streets. The new color is supposed to remind drivers to move out of and keep the bus lane free for SEPTA buses. "Red paint has been shown to be an effective treatment for improving the compliance of bus lanes by making it very clear for drivers where a vehicle should be traveling," the city said in a press release.

Phillies DH/OF Bryce Harper will miss at least a few weeks after breaking his thumb on Saturday, 6/25, in San Diego. The reining NL MVP was hit by a 97 mph pitch and left the game in pain. He will be re-evaluated soon to determine next steps. Despite also playing most of the season with a UCL tear in his elbow that has kept him out of right field, Harper has been having another MVP caliber season at DH.

UPDATE: Bryce Harper is expected to have surgery on his thumb. He will miss at least two months.
