Firefighters from around Schuylkill County responded to a house fire on Glenworth Road just outside Pottsville Tuesday morning.

At the scene, those firefighters found 57 Glenworth Road fully consumed with flames. According to, the 8-acre property you’ve surely noticed if you’re familiar with the Hillside area around Pottsville features the 2,800-square foot main home that burned.

As you’ll see below, at one point during the incident, firefighters were ordered out and off of the sprawling house as flames continued to consumer the building. Check out the scene captured by Fire & Film and posted to YouTube earlier today:
