Nick, any idea where on the High Line this happened?  Access for Phila Fire Dept (or anybody) is difficult for most of the stretch to say the least.

If you visit the Philadelphia Inquirer's Instagram page there are a few pictures - looks like just north of 30th St. Station. Their Instagram page is named inquirer_photo.
I've seen CSX has been doing work up there over the past year - maybe the high wind was a factor in getting an otherwise benign ember started. Will be interesting to see how they get trains in and out of S. Philly now.

They will just go up the B&O side, and across the columbia bridge
