An eastern Pennsylvania castle built in 1821 has been gutted by fire.

The Rocky Hill Castle in Chadds Ford Township was reported on fire about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Firefighters had difficulty getting water to the castle, which is built on a hill in a wooded area of the township about 25 miles southwest of Philadelphia.

The castle's current owners bought it in 1957.

The home was listed for sale recently for $647,000 and was said to need renovations.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Fire crews were working to determine what caused the fire.
