Fire crews arrived at the scene and quickly struck a second alarm.
One person was transported to Doylestown Hospital.
Police were on the scene first and started removing tanks of hydrochloric acid from the side of the house.
It was unclear if they removed all the tanks, so the firefighters had to keep their distance while fighting the fire.
The blaze is under investigation.
