DUNCANNON, Pa. (WHTM) -

State police are investigating a suspected case of arson at a vacant house in Perry County at 2 a.m. on Friday.

Officials said a fast-moving garage fire spread into the roof section of the house along the 3400 block of Susquehanna Trail in Watts Township.

Quick action by volunteer firefighters spared the first and second floors from destruction. Crews were hampered by overgrown trees and bushes.

According to authorities, the house hadn't been occupied for the past 15 years and didn't have utilities.

Anyone with information may contact police at 717-249-2121.
