Crews were called to the 400 block of Pine Avenue in Altoona around 6:30 Saturday morning. The building was completely engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. The house was vacant at the time and crews say everyone in the neighboring houses were able to make it out safely. The blaze destroyed one home and extended to neighboring houses on each side causing significant damage.
Officials are still investigating what caused the fire, but they believe it started outside the building.
