An Armstrong Township home on Route 15 was damaged by an early morning fire on Wednesday.
The fire at 1936 Route 15 broke out about 3:40 a.m. and was brought under control about 20 minutes after volunteer firefighters arrived on the scene, according to borough Fire Chief William Shaffer.
The homeowner, whose identity was not available, managed to call 911 and get out on his own, Shaffer said.
"The fire appeared to be in a game room" on the first floor, Shaffer said, adding that firefighters were successful in preventing the fire from spreading.
To reach the house, firefighters had to stretch about 1,000 feet of hose up a long driveway, he added.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
Firefighters from the borough, Clinton Township, DuBoistown, Nisbet, Hepburn Township and Montgomery responded to the fire.
Shaffer believed the homeowner would be able to remain in the house. No damage estimate has been set.
