Home burns Tuesday morning in Leetsdale
Crews battled a fire late Tuesday morning on Route 65 in Leetsdale.
The fire started in the back of a house at 64 Ohio River Boulevard in Leetsdale at about 11:45 a.m., borough Fire Chief Ernie Logan said. An adult and three children, who rent the home, were not home at the time.
"We were standing at the fire department talking when we saw the fire go up," firefighter Wes James said. "We had a fire engine out before we could call 911."
Logan said fire quickly spread to all three floors of the home.
Traffic on Route 65 had been restricted to a single lane in each direction.
