Westmoreland County dispatchers say emergency crews were called to the 600 block of Meadowbrook Road in Penn Township at 2:38 p.m. on Sunday.

When Channel 11 arrived on scene, smoke was pouring out of the windows of the house’s top floor windows.

Investigators say there were no injuries.

The Level Green Volunteer Fire Department said the fire started after a car crashed into it. The driver was trying to avoid hitting a deer.

Firefighters say the vehicle was a total loss after it went up in flames. The driver was able to make it out safely.

No one lives inside the house but an addition to it was destroyed.

The fire chief said the house was built in the late 1800s, which made it difficult to put out the flames.
