House to be condemned after Friday morning fire

James Knox | Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Firefighters battle a two-alarm fire at a house on Lilac Avenue Friday November 23, 2012 in Ross. All of the four occupants got out safe but, a cat was unaccounted for according to Ross Fire Marshall John Reubi. Up to ten companies were on scene and they had a tough time battle the blaze due to a loaded and inaccessable attic Reubi said. The fire started at around 8:15 am and there were no injuries. The Allegheny County Fire Marshall was on scene to assist Ross in the investigation.
