Chief: Two women dead in Pittsburgh fire

April 30, 2014

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Two women have been found dead inside their Pittsburgh home, which caught fire and spread to two neighboring homes.

Fire Chief Darryl Jones says the women lived in the first home that was reported on fire shortly after 6:30 a.m. Wednesday in the city’s Fineview neighborhood.

Authorities did not immediately release the names of the women, who reportedly lived in the home and had mobility issues. One woman was found in a chair, the other in a bathroom, both on the third floor of the home.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation. It was largely under control by about 8 a.m.

Fineview is located in the northern part of the city, across the Allegheny River from downtown and near the neighborhood known as the North Side.
