An old warehouse that caught fire Friday evening rekindled this morning, occupying firefighters since about 6:30 a.m.
An emergency dispatch supervisor said the commercial building in the 300 block of Linden Avenue in the railyard area of the borough initially had caught fire at about 8 p.m. Friday.
Dozens of firefighters from at least seven stations were dispatched this morning amidst fears the blaze would spread to neighboring structures. Despite their efforts, the fire spread to an adjacent building that housed vehicles for the Professional Limousine Service.
A man who did not give his name but who said he is an owner of the business said the damage is "significant." He said Sunday's rekindle was the second, noting firefighters also had been called to the scene on Saturday.
The warehouse was a vacant structure that had been part of the old Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad complex.
