Structure Fire Assist-North Braddock
Friday, January 4, 2013
UVFR was alerted to the 1300 block of Rebecca Street in North Braddock to act as the rapid intervention team at a dwelling fire. 135 Rescue and squad responded with 10 members. There were no team activations.

Crews arrived to find a two story structure well involved in fire. Unfortunately, two small children were found deceased during the suppression efforts. Our sympathies go out to their families.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Allegheny County Fire Marshall.
