DUQUESNE, Pa. —
Flames burned down a home after a deck caught fire at the house next door. Firefighters said an 8-year-old was at her aunt's when she heard something toward the back of the house. She saw someone running on the deck and when she went to check, there were flames. The girl and aunt both escaped, as well as the owner of the nearby home where the flames spread. As fire engulfed the tan brick home, firefighters said the intense heat caused several issues. Officials said they brought a cooling station, which was ultimately used to treat a firefighter for heat exhaustion. Firefighters took 15 minute shifts fighting the flames and recuperating at the cooling station. Officials are still investigating what caused the fire.
