PENN HILLS, Pa. —
A Penn Hills woman and her two toddlers were able to escape their burning home Wednesday afternoon.
Firefighters responded to the home on Coal Hollow Road about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday and found the first-floor of the two-story frame structure engulfed in flames.
Police and fire personnel reported hearing explosions coming from the home as gas electrical systems ignited, authorities said.
The woman, who is in her 30s, and her children, ages 4 and 5, were being evaluated by paramedics but did not appear to have suffered any major injuries.
The fire destroyed the home and its contents. The American Red Cross is helping the family.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
