Husband rescues wife from car fire on North Side


PITTSBURGH - A man was able to safely rescue his wife from a car fire Tuesday night in the North Side.

Firefighters were called to extinguish a car fire on Brighton Road just after 5 p.m. Tuesday.

When emergency crews got to the scene, a man told them he and his wife were driving home when they noticed smoke coming from the rear of their car.

The man told officials they tried to make it home because they were less than a few blocks away, but eventually had to stop when the smoke got worse.

The man told Channel 11 News that within seconds of him getting his wife out of the car, it burst into flames.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
