'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

One person escaped unharmed from a fire in Shaler this morning.

The fire was reported about 5:40 a.m. at a two-story building on Butler Plank Road, according to the Shaler Villa Volunteer Fire Company.

A person living on the second floor fled the building. The first floor is vacant office space, a spokesman with the fire company said.

The fire appears to have started on the second floor and was contained to the back side of the building, he said.

No one was injured in the fire, which is under investigation by the Allegheny County and Shaler fire marshals.
