While standing by in station for potentially strong storms moving through the area, UVFR was alerted to respond as the rapid intervention team (RIT) to North Braddock Borough for a dwelling fire on Murdough Street.
135 Rescue responded, and crews acted in a team capacity. There were no team activations, however two team members did perform a hasty search for an occupant that was thought to be trapped in the basement. Happily, the resident was able to get out on their own.
The fire is under investigation by the Allegheny County Fire Marshall.
