More than 10 area fire companies battled blazes in two homes on North Holland Avenue in Rankin, an Allegheny County emergency dispatch supervisor confirmed.
The three-alarm fire left the homes "uninhabitable" by the time the scene cleared Saturday evening, Rankin Borough volunteer fire department chief James Negley said.
"It seemed they were both burning pretty good," he said. It is unknown in which building the fire originated, Chief Negley said.
The residential homes caught fire around 4:10 p.m. Saturday afternoon. There were no reported injuries and everyone has been accounted for at the scene.
Allegheny County fire marshals are investigating the cause of the fire.
