Upper Allen Township Fire Chief Jim Salter says firefighters had trouble battling the Mechanicsburg fire Wednesday afternoon because nearby fire hydrants were buried in snow. Mechanicsburg is about 8 miles southwest of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania's capital.

Five children and two adults were able to escape safely. Salter says one family member was taken to a hospital for an evaluation.

An official with Bret Michaels Entertainment tells The Sentinel of Carlisle that the home was one of the singer's childhood homes. He lived there between the ages of six and 17.

Firefighters say a cooking accident is thought to have ignited the blaze at the ranch-style home.
