Steubenville Pike has reopened after an early morning fire in Robinson, but the blaze appears to have rekindled, authorities said.

No serious injuries have been reported in the fire at a structure in the 4200 block of Steubenville Pike, which started shortly before 5 a.m. and closed at least one lane of the road.

The fire occurred at Merlyn Kennels, where a couple, who may have suffered smoke inhalation, managed to get their animals out of the burning building, KDKA-TV reported.

An Allegheny County emergency dispatch supervisor said firefighters were still on the scene shortly before 7:30 a.m. A tweet from Allegheny County said the fire had kindled.
