UPDATE: Crews continued to battle the fire at 11330 Cosby Manor Road in Schuyler into the afternoon hours on Wednesday.

Fire officials say the fire began in the garage and spread to the house. NEWSChannel 2 crews arrived on scene before fire crews, and at that time, flames were visible through the roof of the garage.

A fire official on scene said that when the fire started, the homeowner was in the garage putting stabilizer in his snowblower to prepare it for the summer season when it wouldn't be used, and that's believed to be the cause of the fire at this time. Officials say the homeowner made it out safely, and no people or pets were injured in the fire.

At the height of the fire there were six fire departments helping to battle the flames, according to fire officials on scene.

We will continue to provide new details as they become available.
