Around 1930 on January 21, 2024, fire crews were dispatched to the 2700 block of Dinsmore Street in the City of McKeesport for a reported fire around the fireplace. Crews arrived quickly and found a working fire in the walls. A second alarm was requested as McKeesport fire crews started to attack the fire. However, the fire ran the walls into the roof area. Due to bad hydrants, tankers were requested to the scene. Crews worked for just about an hour before the fire was placed under control. No injuries were reported, and the fire was under investigation.
