• Crews battle intense house fire


    FORWARD TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Fire crews rushed to the scene of an intense house fire early Sunday morning. 

    The fire occurred at a home on Munger Lane. Emergency officials said the home was a total loss.

    One person was inside the home and was able to get out when the fire broke out. There is also slight damage to a neighboring home. 

    Neighbors told Channel 11's Lori Houy they've been complaining about the condition of the house for years, calling it a disaster waiting to happen.

    Dennis Baccile, who lives next door, said there were holes in the roof, walls falling over and trees growing inside, plus no water or gas.

    "We've been calling the health department, trying to get the house taken care of because it needed to be condemned," Baccile said.

    Baccile's home and another house behind his were both damaged.
