RANSHAW -- A bulldozer ripped down what is left of the building on 5th Street in Northumberland County.

Police responded to the fire that started around noon on Saturday.

The home, which has been around since the 1900's, was at one time a church, then a historical society.

The building has been a residence since the 1980's.

Only one person lived in the home but he was not hurt.

No word yet what sparked the fire.
