    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH,None - Firefighters had to break into a building to rescue a man who said he was trapped inside of a storage locker in Pittsburgh's South Side.

     

    Emergency responders said they received the call around 4 a.m. Tuesday morning from a storage unit at Store Express.

     

    Officials said the man called from inside of the building using a cellphone.

     

    Firefighters said they brought in a ladder truck to break out a second-floor window in an effort to try and get to the man. Eventually firefighters were able to open a garage on the ground floor and the man walked out.

     

    The man told Channel 11's Britny McGraw that he's homeless and went in for warmth when he somehow got locked inside.

     

    The man was not hurt. There is no word on if any charges will be filed.
