A family of four, two adults and two children, lived in the home, which is now a total loss. The family was not home at the time.

Emergency officials say there was a danger the fire could spread to a neighboring home. Crews hosed it down as a precaution.

"There was an initial report that there were two homes on fire, and the crew from 167 checked the house and it was just smoke blowing in the house through the eaves. They had to put water on it to keep it from catching on fire," said Lt. Donald Trebach, Cheswick Volunteer Fire Department.

No injuries have been reported.

However, neighbors say two family pets did not get out of the home.

At least 11 fire departments responded to the scene.

A fire marshal is investigating the cause.
