STEELTON, Pa. (WHTM) — A two-alarm fire injured four people and damaged three homes in Dauphin County on Saturday, Nov. 4.
According to Chief of Steelton Fire Gene Vance, the call came in just before 1:30 pm on Saturday to a fire in the 100 block of South 4th Street in Steelton.
A duplex went up in flames and the wind caught one of the homes next to it. Shentelle Easter called 911 when she noticed the duplex starting to burn and tried to help those inside.
“I was beeping the horn to let them know that their house was on fire,” Easter said.
Vance said that the Red Cross has been notified to help those who were displaced due to the fire.
Four people sustained non-life-threatening injuries and one firefighter was checked for injuries as a result of the two-alarm fire.
“The injured people were out back. They jumped out the back window and out the back door,” Vance said.
One of the homes damaged belongs to Stacey Smith. Her boyfriend and nephew were at the home when the fire broke out, and her boyfriend broke the news to her.
“He said ‘babe get home our house is on fire. get home now.’ I had just hung up with him ten minutes ago from asking me to bring stuff from the grocery store where I work,” Smith said.
Vance said that the fire is under investigation at this time.
