MARCY, N.Y. -- Firefighters were on the scene of a house fire in the town of Marcy. Calls came in just before 1:00am Friday for a fire at 5833 Linda Drive. 

Chief Jared Pearl with the Maynard Fire Department confirms with NEWSChannel 2 that the fire started in the garage and traveled to the connecting home. 

At this point, its unclear how many people were actually living in the home, but the chief says all the residents and a pet made it out safe. No injuries were reported. 

Pearl adds that the initial call came from a passing off-duty firefighter. 

Fire crews from Maynard, Stittville, Yorkville, Deerfield, and Whitesboro responded, as well as first responders with Oneida County Emergency Services. 

"How the fire was discovered was by a local passerby," said Chief Pearl. "It happened to be a Whitesboro volunteer firefighter. They were driving in the area coming home from a friend's house, located the fire, smelled the smoke in the roadway all the way over to Morris Road. Then drove up and down the road and located it and toned us out. At that time the fire was already up through the loft and garage. It was smoke and flames visible right from the get-go."

Firefighters are expected to remain on the scene well into the morning hours. Fire officials are reaching out to the American Red Cross for those who are now displaced from the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
