Several Duquesne homes damaged in fire

Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 7:51 a.m.
 

No one was hurt when fire spread through three houses in Duquesne on Wednesday morning. The fire was reported about 4:45 a.m. at a home on Fourth Street, Duquesne Fire Chief Andrew Fedor said. There was heavy fire in the back,” Fedor said. “Due to the houses being so close to each other, it spread to the adjacent houses.” Crews put the two-alarm fire under control in about two hours, Fedor said. Two people escaped the fire at the first house; the middle house was occupied but Fedor didn't know how many people lived there; and the third house was vacant. The Allegheny County Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of the fire. Kevin Brown of the American Red Cross, Western Pennsylvania Region, said the agency was assisting four adults with food, clothes and shelter.
