Fire Rips Through Montgomery Township Home During Height Of Storm

MONTGOMERY TWP., Pa. -

Fire officials are trying to determine what caused a fire to rip through a Montgomery Township home Wednesday evening during the height of a storm.

A neighbor recorded cell phone video of it happening at a house on Raven Hollow Drive.

Fire officials say the house sustained extensive damage to the roof and second floor. A neighbor says he ran over to bang on the door, but fortunately a woman and her dog, the only ones home at the time, were on the way out.

"Within about the time we saw the first flame through the roof, in another 10 minutes it had already consumed half the roof," said Matt Gorni who lives next door.

The Red Cross is helping the family, including a husband, wife and their two children.
