PITTSBURGH (AP) - Authorities say two people were injured in an early morning fire that struck two homes and prompted evacuations on Pittsburgh’s North Side.

Public safety officials said the blaze was reported at about 5 a.m. Sunday in a home in the Troy Hill neighborhood. Officials said the flames spread to a neighboring structure and prompted evacuation of several other homes.

Officials say one man who jumped from a second-floor window was taken to a local hospital with a cut on his foot. A firefighter was also taken to UPMC Mercy with shortness of breath and possible smoke inhalation.

The Salvation Army was at the scene to help firefighters and Red Cross officials were alerted to help people with temporary housing.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
