The Red Cross opened a respite center for displaced residents at the First Presbyterian Church on Duquesne Boulevard. A Pittsburgh Regional Transit bus will take residents to the center, which will serve as a place where they can warm up and get food and information.

The fire marshal was at the scene. There was no word on what caused the fire, but the investigation is ongoing.

No injuries were reported.

The Red Cross said anyone who needs help can call 1-800-733-2767.
