Brighton Heights Fire Destroys 2 Cars, Damages Home
BRIGHTON HEIGHTS (KDKA)- Investigators are looking into an overnight fire that destroyed two cars and damaged a house in Brighton Heights.
According to police, the fire started around 1:15 a.m. in the 4000-block of Oswald Street in.
Two cars caught on fire and the flames spread to nearby bushes, which ended up melting the siding off of the front of a house.
The family who lives in the damaged home also owned both cars that were destroyed.
“As you can see, the siding on the house had melted from the radiant heat, but we knocked it down pretty quickly. Fortunately, it didn’t make it into the structure,” Pittsburgh Fire Chief Larry Yakich said.
Fire officials said the fire looks suspicious and arson investigators were called to the scene.
There are no reported injuries.
