LEE, N.Y. -- No injuries are reported after two adults, three children and two dogs escaped their burning home in the town of Lee.
The fire happened on Elmer Hill Road around 5:30 a.m. Friday morning.
Assistant Fire Chief Paul Taylor with Lake Delta Fire Department says the fire started in the garage and spread to the home. The garage burned to the ground.
Residents of the neighboring home had to be evacuated as well. The side of their home facing the flames caught on fire, melting the siding.
Assistant Fire Chief Taylor says a demolition team was coming in to take care of the back of the home because it posed as a hazard. During this time, he says those displaced plan on staying with their relatives who live nearby.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
