Crews responded to a five alarm fire in a downtown Pittsburgh apartment building.
Firefighters got the fire under control around 12:15 a.m. Monday morning, officials said. It’s not clear yet what caused the fire.
Early Monday morning, Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey tweeted, “Thank you @PghFireFighters for your heroic work.”
106 people were in the building at the time of the fire, officials said.
The American Red Cross opened an emergency shelter at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center for the displaced residents. Approximately 75 residents and one pet sought shelter there overnight.
Anyone in need of assistance should call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and select option #4 for Disaster Relief.
