Man injured in Coraopolis fire
One man was hurt in fire that damaged a duplex in Coraopolis on Monday, the volunteer fire chief said.
Paramedics took the man to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, for treatment of the burns to his feet and legs, Coraopolis volunteer fire Chief Larry Byrge said. A woman and a child escaped the burning duplex on 5th Avenue unharmed, Byrge said.
The fire, which was reported at 4:10 a.m. appears to have started in the occupied unit and spread to the vacant unit next door, Byrge said. He described the duplex as a total loss. The American Red Cross is helping the family with food, clothing and shoes, according to a news release.
The Allegheny County Fire Marshal's office is investigating the cause.
