Man Loses Everything In Leechburg Fire

LEECHBURG (KDKA) — It has been a devastating day for a Leechburg man and his girlfriend.

They were at work when they got the call that their home on Market Street was on fire.

When 22-year old Kyle McCain got home, there was little left of the house he’s rented for the last two years.

“That’s everything I own,” he said. “I have nothing.”

A woman delivering auto parts in the area noticed smoke coming from his house and became alarmed when she saw children’s toys on the front porch.

Another passerby kicked in the front door.

A neighbor snapped photos of the house shortly after the fire broke out.

Kyle McCain and his girlfriend as well as another man who lived in the home were all at work but their four dogs died in the blaze.

An assistant fire chief was also taken to the hospital after he fell at the scene.

Kyle McCain says he did not have renters insurance and will look to the Red Cross for help.

A fire marshal will be on scene later today to try and determine a cause.

    KDKA, How can we help this young man and his girlfriend who lost everything, uncluding their pets, in this horrible fire ?? Please advise….

  2. I am sorry to hear this. I was in a fire almost a year ago and lost everything. There were seven tenants total that were in the same situation. This family should not feel alone because there are others out there who have gone through similar situations. The best thing to do is help raise donations and provide emotional support.
