According to Daily Star UK, a massive blaze has engulfed nursing home overnight with reports of multiple people unaccounted for.

The fire broke out at the Barclay Friends Senior Living Community in West Chester, which is 35 miles west of Philadelphia in the United States.

Alarms were set off at around 11pm local time (4am UK), prompting a mass evacuation of people living there.

A Chester County dispatcher, who sent police and firefighters to the scene, said: “All I can tell you is we have multiple alarms and multiple evacuations."

Shocking footage of the scene shows flames ravaging the building and plumes of smoke high in the sky.

Other images taken in the early hours of the morning show elderly residents huddled outside in the freezing cold.

A witness wrote on Twitter: "Fire at Barclays senior center in WC. Helicopters everywhere. Tons of smoke. Yikkkkeesssss."

Another tweeted: "Someone please host some of those senior citizens in West Chester, it's freezing and they just lost their nursing home to a fire."

More than a 20 dozen residents were rushed to hospital, although their condition is not clear.

All medical centres in the area were also been told to expect patients.

Shocked people living nearby said they saw multiple people being rescued from burning buildings.

According to its website, the Barclay Friends home offers professional nursing staff 24/7 hours a day, as well as meals and other services.
