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.
