Fire destroys Bethel Park apartment

| Monday, Sept. 12, 2011

There were no injuries in a fire early today that destroyed an apartment in Bethel Park.

The fire erupted about 5 a.m. in the 300 building of the Village Apartments on Abbeyville Road, Bethel Park police Sgt. Blake Babin said.

The woman who lives in the apartment was not home, Babin said.

Babin said when firefighters arrived, there was smoke in the building and the neighbors said that the resident of the apartment could not be located.

Police attempted to break down the door but were driven back by heavy smoke and flames, Babin said.

Firefighters eventually extinguished the fire, and the fire marshal is investigating.
