Home Gutted by Fire in Columbia County

BRIAR CREEK TOWNSHIP -- A fire gutted a home in Columbia County and it's not the first time crews were there.

Photos sent in from a view show flames shooting from the place on Water Dam Road near Berwick.

Power was cut to the home after firefighters were called there hours before because of a problem with a hot water heater.

Crews were back at the home around 11:30 p.m. to battle the flames.

No one was home at the time of the fire, and the people who live there are staying with friends.

A state police fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire here in Columbia County.
