Firefighters battle flames at Homestead apartment building



HOMESTEAD, Pa. - Firefighters battled a three-alarm fire Friday night at an apartment building in Homestead.

The blaze was reported at a three-story building on Ann Street around 8:30 p.m.

Channel 11’s Pamela Osborne reported multiple fire departments responded to help fight the blaze. The flames were eventually brought under control around 9:30 p.m.

One person who was inside the building told Osborne he jumped out of a window because the hallway was filled with smoke.

“I opened it and it was all smoke, so I had to jump out the window,” Elroy Moore said. “Luckily, I’m only one floor up. It’s a good thing I’m not a sound sleeper because I wouldn’t have heard anything.”

It’s unclear if any injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
