STOWE TOWNSHIP, Pa. —

Three people were able to escape a fire that destroyed a Stowe Township home early Thursday morning.

Firefighters said they were called to the house on Highland Avenue around 12:30 a.m.

When they arrived, emergency responders said flames were shooting out of the 2-and-a-half story home.

Two people who live at the home and a visitor were there at the time of the blaze.

They were able to escape, and no injuries were reported. 

Neighbor Dawn O’Donnell lives two houses down and said she woke up when she smelled smoke.

“I ran out and I noticed that the house next door was on fire,” O’Donnell said.

The fire melted some power lines, cutting power to neighbor Christine Scott’s home for a short time.

“I didn’t know what to do and all that. I have my baby in the house, so I got worried,” Scott said.

Officials said the house is a complete loss. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
