Crews  battled a fire in the 900 block of Green Springs Road in Berwick Township, Adams County Friday night.

United Hook and Ladder Fire officials  say the fire started around 9:30 p.m. in a double-wide rancher style home. The resident was overcome by smoke and taken to the hospital as a precaution, according to officials.

Fire crews had only limited access to the home, due to a narrow driveway and needed to use smaller tankers to fight the fire.

Firefighters also found power lines down on the driveway due to the fire.

The State Police Fire Marshal is investigating the cause.

Damage is estimated at $75,000.
