In the early AM UVFR Station 135 was alerted along with Wilmerding Station 306, Fire Dept of N Versailles Station 213 and Pitcairn RIT 230 for a report of a dwelling fire on Larimer Ave near Third St. Crews arrived to find a large 2 1/2 story house with heavy fire from the top floor. Crews darkened the fire from the exterior and then went inside to finish extinguishment. Due to the large volume of fire and cold weather, a second alarm was transmitted for manpower bringing Forest Hills station 153 and North Braddock station 207. The fire is currently under investigation by the Allegheny County Fire Marshall. Units on scene: 135 213 306 230 153 207 EAPS E. McK PD, ACFM
