'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.

A fire Sunday morning in Chartiers Township injured four people and damaged a home.

The Chartiers Township Volunteer Fire Department was sent at 7:54 a.m. to a two-story frame house in the 600 block of Railroad Street.

“There was heavy smoke and water damage,” a fire department spokesman said.

A Washington County emergency dispatcher for Washington County said four family members were taken to a hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation. Neither the dispatcher nor the fire department spokesman could provide further details about the fire. The Houston, Peters Township, North Strabane and South Strabane fire departments assisted.
