Three people escape house fire in Turtle Creek

Three people escaped from a Turtle Creek home after a fire broke out Monday Night.

The fire happened on Chestnut Street around 10 p.m. Monday

Malik Matthews told WTAE he was playing Xbox when he and his sister smelled smoke.

Matthews ran to a neighbor’s house to call 911.  He realized his cats were missing.

“We have two cats. We couldn’t find either of them. Eventually we found them on the back deck. They were scared,” said Matthews.

Most of the damage was reportedly contained to Matthew’s bedroom.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
