(ALBANY, Ore. ) - The Albany Fire Department responded to 3750 Glendale St. at 12:47 a.m. Sunday to a report of a fire in a garage.

Firefighters arrived at the scene in about seven minutes and found a house partially engulfed in fire. Firefighters requested resources from neighboring fire departments to assist with extinguishment, and requested water tankers to respond because the house is remote from fire hydrants.

The homeowner was able to escape and exit with her child and pets before firefighters arrived.

The intense fire prevented firefighters from entering the house which forced them to extinguish the fire from the exterior. Firefighters worked through the night and were able to contain the fire to the primary residence; however, multiple cars in the driveway sustained varying levels of damage and a neighbor's house sustained some minor damage as well.

Twenty-five fire department personnel responded to the emergency including personnel from Lebanon and Tangent fire districts. Off-duty Albany firefighters and firefighters from Tangent Rural Fire District and Corvallis Fire Department also responded to handle subsequent emergency calls in Albany.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The home sustained significant fire damage, and no one was injured.
