POTTSVILLE — Investigators are looking for the cause of a fire that forced a husband, wife and their two-year-old daughter from their home in Schuylkill County.

Crews were called to the home along West Norwegian Street in Pottsville around 4 p.m. Monday.

Firefighters said the mother and little girl were outside when the fire started.

A neighbor saw smoke and called 911.

Crews think the fire started on the first floor.

Two homes next door also have damage.
