Community Rallies Around Local Organization Displaced Following Greenfield Fire

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - The community center run by SisTers PGH, a group that supports the trans community, was lost to a fire in Greenfield yesterday.

SisTers PGH says Monday's fire on the second floor spread to their offices and now they're forced to close during a busy time of year.

This has also left them looking for a new place. So far, they've been able to raise just over $4,000 to help them move to a new location.

Even local politicians are stepping in, with Dan Frankel tweeting: "During this season of generosity, please remember (SisTers PGH) an organization that provides invaluable support to our trans community. SisTers' facility had a fire today & the organization is seeking donations to help them prepare for their next steps."

A woman had to jump out a window to escape the fire. Officials say she had some cuts and was taken to a local hospital.

Still no word on a cause of the fire.
