Several Duquesne homes damaged in fire
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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
