Firefighters dodge ammo fighting house fire

Crews were still trying to determine the cause of the blaze, which killed a litter of kittens

PENN HILLS, Pa. — Ammunition that continued to go off inside of a burning Penn Hills apartment home Monday night made the firefighters’ job difficult, Penn Hills Fire Chief John Capone said.

Firefighters responded to a home in the 6400 block of Leechburg Road around 8:10 p.m. Firefighters were called back to the scene before 5 a.m. Tuesday when the flames rekindled.

Capone said a litter of kittens died, but two people, a dog and two cats were rescued from the flames.
