More than a dozen people had to be assisted by the American Red Cross after fire swept through an apartment building on Hartman Street on Wednesday afternoon.
One person jumped from a third-floor window and two tenants were rescued by firefighters using ladders, emergency officials said. The cause of the blaze is under investigation by the Allegheny County fire marshal’s office.
The fire at 916 Hartman St. was reported at 1:03 p.m., emergency personnel said, and quickly escalated to three alarms. The building is a four-story brick structure with 16 units, according to county real-estate records, and is owned by a McKeesport resident.
The fire is believed to have started in a first-floor storage area, said McKeesport fire Chief Jeff Tomovcsik. The first crews reporting to the scene found thick smoke coming from the building and residents attempting to evacuate.
The resident who jumped from a third-floor window was transported by ambulance to the hospital for treatment of what were believed to be minor injuries, Tomovcsik said. Two others were rescued via ladders from a fourth-story window, he said.
Crews brought the blaze under control in approximately an hour, but remained on scene during the fire marshal’s investigation, Tomovcsik said.
All of the units in the building suffered smoke damage, he said, and it was unclear on when tenants would be able to return.
Approximately 15 people were believed to have been displaced, according to witnesses.
In addition to all available city crews, firefighters also responded from Bettis Atomic Power Lab, Dravosburg, Duquesne Annex, Glassport, Liberty Borough, Monroeville No. 1, Munhall No. 1 and No. 5, Fire Department of North Versailles, Rainbow, Versailles and White Oak No. 1. Duquesne, Elizabeth and Homeville firefighters also were dispatched, emergency personnel said.
