A resident who spoke to KDKA's Kym Gable said the fire started in the unit next door to hers. No one was in that unit at the time the fire started.

The woman said the flames were intense, and she and the other people who were in her unit had a hard time making their way out of the home because of the smoke.

She also said they had to jump from their back porch to escape the flames.

The woman said they lost everything, but she was grateful to be alive.

Allegheny County officials say no injuries have been reported.
