FRAZER TOWNSHIP, Pa. —
Still in shock, Denise Williams is allowed back into her burnt out home on Butler Logan Road to retrieve irreplaceable personal items, like family pictures.
Williams said, "I don't know what we're going to do, where we're going to go right now."
It was 7 a.m. Williams' husband noticed smoke.
"My husband got up, put on a pot of coffee, got in the shower," said Williams, "He got out, saw a kitchen full of smoke. He told me to grab the baby and run."
Williams rushed their baby girl to the neighbors while her husband woke up her sister and their 12-year-old son. Minutes later, the house was consumed by fire.
Frazer Township's Assistant Fire Chief Ted Bajack said, "It was fully engulfed, flames through the roof. We believe it was possibly electrical."
Because of a shortage of firefighters, several fire companies responded to the call.
Bajack said, "This being the first day of deer season, everyone was short of help. We have six companies here. No one was hurt. We got the job done."
Williams said, "We're not all doing good, but we're safe."
Williams said they've lived in their home for about six years and that they do have insurance.
