There are growing concerns in the City of Duquesne after a string of suspicious fires this week.
Authorities are investigating the cause of an overnight fire that damaged two homes in Braddock.
A suspicious fire damaged a home in Bethel Park Wednesday morning. According to officials at the scene, the fire broke out in the 2600-block of Milford Drive around 10:30 a.m.
The fire marshal will investigate a blaze that damaged a former church in McKeesport overnight. Flames engulfed the former Agape Fellowship Church around midnight.
Officials now believe that an early morning fire at an apartment building in Knoxville was a case of arson.
The second suspicious fire in as many days has fire investigators and police on alert in Braddock.
Another suspicious fire in Duquesne early this morning has residents and officials on alert. “We’ve had roughly five to six fires that have all been suspicious in nature,” Duquesne Fire Lt. Craig Gibson told KDKA-TV.
Crews battled a raging three-alarm house fire in Duquesne overnight with flames so intense that they seemed to jump from one house to the next. While the cause of the blaze is still under investigation, a Duquesne fire official told KDKA-TV that he has no doubt that the fire was intentionally set.
