BROWNVILLE, New York (WWNY) - Fire broke out at a town of Brownville home early Friday morning.

The fire was called in around 4 a.m. with reports of a working fire in a garage attached to a house on Fetterly Road.

A family member tells 7 News that a dog died in the fire, but two children, two adults, two other dogs, and a rabbit got out safely.

Officials say the fire started in the attached garage, which was destroyed along with two trucks and a shed. The home is deemed a total loss.

“We just had to lay quite a bit of hose, over 1,000 feet of hose from the fire hydrant,” Brownville Fire Chief Ryan McIntosh said. “Once that was established, we had quite a bit of water.”

Brownville, Dexter, Glen Park, Sackets Harbor, and Chaumont fire departments battled the blaze.

No injuries were reported. An investigation into the cause is underway.
