NORTH BRADDOCK (KDKA) — A two-alarm fire in North Braddock destroyed three houses Sunday night.

A fire official believes it started in a vacant house around 9:30 p.m. on Lobinger Avenue, and then spread to two other homes.

“The house was completely engulfed. You saw nothing but flames. Pure fire,” a witness said. “I’m shocked the house lasted as long as it did, it was so burned up.”

KDKA’s Lynne Hayes-Freeland was told everyone got out safely, including a woman, her children, and two dogs.

Two firefighters were treated for minor injuries at the scene. At least one had a minor burn to the back of the neck.

Christine D’Antonio’s Report:

Approximately 60 firefighters battled the fire.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
