NAPIER TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A home in Bedford County was destroyed by flames early Tuesday morning.

Officials said the fire started at the home in the 4800 block of Lincoln Highway, Route 30, in Napier Township at about 4:15 a.m. That's east of Schellsburg near Shawnee State Park.

Officials said no one was inside the home, which is a seasonal camp, when the fire started and no injuries were reported. Firefighters did have some difficulty using fire hydrants in the area because of the near-zero temperatures.

Due to the freezing water, crews had to close Route 30 for a period of time because of the icy roadway, officials said.

A state police fire marshal is investigating the blaze.
