The fire was fully involved by the time crews arrived at the scene.

Firefighters are still trying to figure out what sparked the fire, though they do know that it started in the rear bedroom.

According to the East Allen Township Fire Chief, the home is uninhabitable.

He says the smoke detector saved the homeowner's life.
