Two occupants of a home along Shaler Avenue in Shaler escaped without injury when a fire broke out on Wednesday morning, according to authorities. The two-alarm fire was reported at about 7:50 p.m. when a woman living in the home reported hearing what she described as a popping sound coming from the attic of the two-story frame building. The fire was extinguished by 9 a.m., according to firefighters. The house and its contents sustained heavy damage from flames, smoke and water. The Allegheny County fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
