Fire destroyed a home on Iseman Hill Road in Manor late Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters from several companies responded to the home of Christopher and Christi Fetterman but were unable to save the structure.

Crews from Manor, Ford City, Ford Cliff and Kittanning fire departments responded when a neighbor called 911 and said fire was coming out of the windows of the home at 4:15 p.m. About 6:30 p.m., firefighters were still knocking back flames as the fire rekindled itself.

Fire gutted both levels of the two-story home within an hour and a half.

“It went quick,” said neighor Dave Hill, who watched the fire move through the house from his porch. “It's such a shame.”

Nobody was injured in the fire.
