It happened in the 2100 block of Route 100 in the Washington Township area.

Officials say the pipes were frozen inside this home and the person doing renovations was using a space heater to thaw them.

Crews from Berks and Montgomery County were not able to save one side of the home.

No one lived here, so no one was displaced.
