EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP - Just before 11:30 p.m. a fire nearly destroyed a ranch home on the 200 block of Coolidge Avenue.

Crews were able to quickly gain control of the scene and all of the home's residents escaped safely, according to a WPVI report.

The fire appeared to have damaged most of the back end of the house.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
