SALEM TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Flames destroyed a home in Wayne County.

The fire began off Raccoon Circle in Salem Township, in the Indian Rocks development around 11:30 p.m. Monday.

The place is gutted. Fire crews say the flames moved fast, and crews came from several areas to help.

Two people inside made it out safely, but several dogs were missing after the blaze.

"There are two dogs missing at this time, and everyone is accounted for. No injuries," explained Lake Ariel Deputy Fire Chief Chris Dipierro. "It's a quick response by Ledgedale and Hamlin. Got here pretty quick and got a good knock on the fire in the middle of nowhere."

Investigators said the fire started in the chimney of a wood burner inside the home.
