DUQUESNE, Pa. —

Several homes in the city of Duquesne were severely damaged by a fast-moving fire early Wednesday morning.

Channel 11’s Brandon Hudson reported that three homes were damaged in the 100 block of 4th Street.

According to firefighters, the blaze began around 4:50 a.m.

When Hudson arrived at the scene, he said two of the homes were already engulfed in flames and crews were working feverishly to save a third home.

One victim said her neighbor woke her up to tell her that his home was on fire, and the next thing she knew her home was engulfed as well.

No injuries were reported.

The American Red Cross is assisting four adults with food and shelter.

 Duquesne Fire Chief Andrew Fedor said it appears the fire was accidental.

“It was a little bit tough at first when you have three houses going. We had to call in extra crews. All guys did a very good job,” Fedor said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
