By: KDKA-TV News Staff

LAWRENCEVILLE (KDKA) -- A three-alarm duplex fire in Lawrenceville last night reportedly rekindled this morning, causing firefighters to return to the scene.

Sources say the fire rekindled around 10 a.m. Sunday, but there were only a few minor hot spots to be doused out.

As of a little after 11 a.m., fire crews had the site under control.

The fire last night led to two people and their pets evacuating, and two firefighters were injured in the process of putting the flames out.

Pittsburgh Public Safety said Sunday afternoon that the other family that was not at home during the fire has been located and is safe.

The Red Cross is helping them with finding living arrangements.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
