CARROLL TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A house in Washington County may be a total loss after a fire Sunday night.

Firefighters were first called around 8:15 p.m. to the home in the 1200 block of Country Club Road in Carroll Township. Even before they arrived on scene, they could see the flames.

“When we left the building we actually saw the flames through the roof,” said Carroll Township Fire Chief Rob Greenlee. “We weren’t even on scene yet.”
