MERCERSBURG, Pa. -- A two-story house was destroyed in a fire early Monday on Burkett Lane in Montgomery Township, Pa.

The house at 11550 Burkett Lane was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, and the upper floor had collapsed into the one below it, according to a spokesman with the MMP&W Fire Co.

He said the family of four who lived there arrived home at 2 a.m., discovered the fire and called 911.

A Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal was called to investigate the cause of the blaze. Firefighters were on the scene for about five hours.

Assisting MMP&W were the St. Thomas, Greencastle, Marion, Waynesboro, Mont Alto and Maugansville departments.

No injuries were reported.
