Crews are in McKeesport battling a 2-alarm fire.

Flames broke out at a home in the 1800 block of Soles Street around 2:05 a.m. It appears that a car in front of the home also caught fire.

911 dispatchers said that two people have been taken to the hospital, but the extent of their injuries is unknown.

A man who lives inside the home told Channel 11 that five people, including himself, live there.

"I heard a lot of cracking on our front porch. We didn't know what it was. My sister was yelling, 'Get out, get out, get out, there's a fire!' Ran down the steps. We couldn't get out the front door because it was fully engulfed that fast," he said.

He said he and his family used the backdoor to get out of the home.

Right now, it's unclear what caused the fire.

This is a developing story. Channel 11′s Pete DeLuca will be LIVE from the scene with the latest updates on this breaking story on Channel 11 News through 7 a.m.
