A home in Buckley was completely destroyed when a fire ripped through the building early Thursday morning.
The fire was reported around 2 a.m. to the home in the 15000 block of 261st Ave. East, according to East Pierce Fire & Rescue officials.
The elderly residents inside managed to escape before firefighters arrived and no one was injured. However, firefighters faced difficulty in battling the blaze due to a lack of nearby fire hydrant and readily available source of water.Two visiting relatives staying in an adjacent RV were OK and the RV wasn't damaged.
There is no word yet what started the fire.
