Carnegie, PA – At 1:35 A.M. on January 19th, fire crews were dispatched to the 100 block of Railroad Avenue for a reported house on fire. Police quickly arrived and reported a working fire at the address. Fire crews arrived to find heavy fire coming from the home with exposures on both sides also involved. Crews made entry into all three homes, quickly knocking down the fire in both exposures. Crews then worked on containing the fire in the main building before it was finally brought under control about two hours later. Two residents were home at the time of the fire, but made it out safely. The American Red Cross is helping residents displaced in the homes damaged by fire. The Allegheny County Fire Marshal is now investigating.
