Man returns home to intense flames shooting through his family’s roof

RESERVE TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Intense flames shot through the roof of a family’s home early Friday morning in Reserve Township.

It was about 12:30 a.m. when a man returned to his home on Klementina Drive and discovered it was on fire.

He and his family were not staying in the home for the night because of an issue with the furnace. However, he went to check on things when he got a call from the alarm company that the carbon monoxide detector was going off, Reserve Township Volunteer Fire Department Chief Dave Moore said.

As the fire burned through the roof, firefighters were right up against the flames working to ventilate the home.

Firefighters believe the fire started on the first floor, then moved up to the second floor and through the roof.

No one was hurt.

A fire marshal will investigate the cause of the blaze.
