VIDEO: A massive fire destroyed two buildings in Beaver County and left several people, including firefighters, injured. One of the buildings collapsed due to the blaze.
The fire broke out at around 2:30 Thursday morning along Brighton Avenue in Rochester. Firefighters are still on scene trying to douse the flames.
The assistant fire chief told Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 that the injured firefighters have shoulder and ankle injuries. The fourth person taken to the hospital was a man who was inside one of the buildings at the time. The assistant chief says that he is 30 years old. He was able to get out with his two dogs. He is also expected to be OK.
One of the structures was an antique building and there is also an apartment in one of the two buildings. Firefighters say the water supply has been the most challenging part of putting out the fire.
