House fire in Carnegie injures two

Thursday, April 11, 2013, 10:33 a.m.
 

Two people escaped with minor injuries Thursday from a fire that heavily damaged a home in Carnegie.

Carnegie police said the two occupants who fled the residence at 11 Howard St. were taken to St. Clair Hospital, one with minor facial burns.

Neighbors said they heard several explosions at about 7:20 a.m. after the house was already on fire.

Police said there may have been propane tanks in the residence which could have led to the explosions and fueled the fire.

Carnegie firefighters found the house fully involved when they arrived. Mutual aid was provided by fire departments from Bridgeville, Crafton, Glendale and Heidelberg. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

The Red Cross is providing food, clothing and assistance to the two adults displaced by the fire, spokeswoman Dominique Buccina said.
