Firefighters put out a small fire Monday afternoon in the Pennsylvania Bidwell high-rise in Manchester, authorities said.

The first call for the fire on an upper floor came in just before 1:30 p.m., according to Allegheny County 911 supervisors. It was dispatched as a three-alarm fire because of the size of the building, a high-rise apartment complex for senior citizens and people with disabilities run by the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh.

No one was injured and the fire was under control before 2 p.m.
