According to firefighters, they had a difficult time getting to the house.

“We had some accessibility issues getting up here, you see it’s a one [way] street and a dead-end, we couldn’t really get the trucks we normally have up here, so we had to carry a lot of stuff from the bottom of the hill and bring it up,” said Ed Pletsch, the Munhall Fire Chief.

The Red Cross is assisting the family that lived in the home.
