RUSH TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A malfunctioning water heater is being blamed for a fire that wrecked a home in Schuylkill County.

Flames destroyed the place on Crescent Drive near Tamaqua Wednesday morning.

A state police fire marshal determined the water heater caused the blaze to break out in the basement.

No one was home, but two ferrets did not make it out.
