CAMP HILL, Pa. (WHTM) -

Monday night, Lower Allen Township Police confirmed that a body was recovered from the rubble after a fire ripped through an elderly couple's home that morning.

The announcement was made around 10 p.m., marking the 12 hours crews were on scene. No further details were made available.

The search wrapped up around 11 p.m. and will resume around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning for the remaining missing resident.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family members," Lower Allen Township Public Safety Director Frank Williamson said.

Previously reported:

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 Monday morning.

Officials said efforts to put out the fire were also hampered by ice and cold weather, as well as a propane tank that caught fire and added fuel to the flames.
