Officials said they have been unable to account for an elderly couple who lived in a home that caught fire this morning in Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County.
Firefighters could not get inside the home in the 1600 block of Carlisle Road when they arrived just after 10 a.m. because of the intense heat and flames, and as they fought the flames the first and second floors collapsed.
The names of the couple have not been released.
Neighbors said the man who lived in the home was seen clearing snow from his driveway this morning.
Officials said efforts to put out the fire were also hampered by the cold weather.
