No one was injured after a two-alarm fire broke out in Baldwin on Thursday morning.

The home in the 900 block of Streets Run Road was empty save for pets when the fire started just after 8 a.m., said Assistant Chief David Connell of the South Baldwin Volunteer Fire Company.

Three dogs and several cats were in the home, he said. One dog got out a window and was reunited with the owner, Connell said. Several cats perished in the fire. The other dogs are unaccounted for.

The fire is under investigation by the Allegheny County Fire Marshal's office.
