Officials said crews battled a two-alarm fire at multiple rowhomes on Locust Street near Van Braam Street on Monday night.

WATCH:

Pittsburgh Public Safety said the fire spread to three homes and was under control around 11 p.m. Officials believe the fire started in a vacant home and then spread.

"We just heard knocking on our door. I ran up and I got my roommates and I was like, 'Get out of the house,'" said one person who lived in an impacted rowhome.

A connecting building also caught fire hours later. No injuries were reported.
