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.
