Rush Twp., PA (WBNG Binghamton) A fire ripped through part of a home in Susquehanna County, Pa., leaving six people homeless and fire investigators looking for answers.

The call went out just after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday for a home at 87 Creamery Hill Road in Rush Twp.

Firefighters said the back half of the trailer was heavily engulfed in flames when they arrived on scene, although firefighters had little difficulty putting it out.

Homeowner John Brace said he was just down the road when he received the call from family members to come home.

"They saw it, so they called me and I came up and we saw an air conditioner on fire," said Brace.

Fire officials said that's a likely cause.

"The fire started around the air conditioner unit. The state police fire marshal has been notified and they'll come out and do their investigation tomorrow," said Rush Twp. Fire Chief Tom Jauss.

Four adults and two children live at the home, according to Jauss.

Two people were inside at the time of the fire and escaped without injury.
