This is what remains of a kitchen in a home along Upland Terrace in Penn Hills. A two-alarm fire left three people homeless Wednesday evening.

American Red Cross is assisting at least three Penn Hills residents with shelter after fire destroyed their house Wednesday evening.

Penn Hills Volunteer Fire Co. No. 5 Assistant Chief Mike Stadelman said no one was injured battling the two-alarm blaze at 8910 Upland Terrace shortly before 7 p.m.

He said one of the residents told the Penn Hills fire marshal they had something cooking on a stove in the first-floor kitchen, left and came back to find their house on fire.

Stadelman said the fire spread to the second and third floors.

The home is believed to be a total loss.

Firefighters from Churchill, Verona and Oakmont also responded.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
