Police: 3 people injured in Pittsburgh house fire have died


Authorities say the three people critically injured in a house fire in a Pittsburgh neighborhood this week have died.

City police say a 96-year-old woman and a 48-year-old man died Thursday, while a 47-year-old woman died Friday afternoon. The victims' names and further information about them have not been disclosed.

The fire in the Greenfield neighborhood was reported around 11:20 p.m. Wednesday. Authorities say the street was filled with very heavy smoke when emergency responders arrived, but crews were able to get the trapped victims out the home a short time later.

Some nearby homes were evacuated while firefighters battled the blaze. Those residents were allowed to return home about four hours later.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
