Historic castle in Delaware County damaged by fire

A historic castle was heavily damaged after a fire broke out overnight in Delaware County, CBSPhilly reports.

The flames broke out around 2 a.m. at the Rocky Hill Castle in Chadds Ford, a nearly 200-year-old home on the 100 block of Bullock Road.

Firefighters spent about two hours working to get the fire under control. The home, which was up for sale, is located on a hill in a wooded area, which made efforts to put out the blaze more difficult.

No injuries were reported, but the home sustained heavy damage.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
