DICKSON CITY -- Firefighters responded to a house fire Wednesday morning in Dickson City.

It started around 10:30 a.m. at the home on Morgan Street.

No one was home at the time.

Neighbors who were here said the place went up in flames quickly and was engulfed in a matter of minutes.

Cellphone video sent to Newswatch 16 shows intense flames engulfing the building.

Neighbors say a brother and sister live in the home and both were at work when the fire started.

A neighbor saw smoke coming from the roof and called 911.

After the flames were under control, firefighters went in the building to check for hot spots. At that point, fire started on the second floor again.

A state police fire marshal will be called in to try to figure out what caused the fire, and what caused it to spread so quickly.

    “and what caused it to spread so quickly.” Easy one there – old wooden house, nobody home. Only takes minutes for a room and contents to turn into an inferno. Condolences to the residents / homeowner.
