MT. LEBANON (KDKA) — An 85-year-old woman was rescued from a Mt. Lebanon home when a fire broke out Monday evening.

The 2-alarm fire broke out just before 6:15 p.m. at a home in the 700 block of Pinoak Road.

The fire started in a garage area of the home.

Firefighters removed an 85-year-old woman from the house.

“They were downstairs. She was there with another person. She tried to evacuate up and out the front door, and she didn’t quite make it [out of the house],” Mt. Lebanon Fire Chief Nick Sohyda said.

The fire chief says the woman may have passed out from the smoke. She was taken to the hospital, but she is expected to be OK.
