WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say an overnight fire claimed the life of one person near Philadelphia.

Fire crews in Chester County were sent to the Birmingham Township home at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Tankers were brought to the scene since the relatively rural area lacked fire hydrants close to the blaze.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
