Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish a garage fire before it extended into a house in Huntley Thursday afternoon, fire officials said.

The Huntley Fire Protection District responded around 12:17 p.m. Thursday to the 8900 block of Pearsall Drive in Huntley for a report of a structure fire.

Firefighters arrived on the scene within minutes but initially did not see any smoke or flames visible, according to Huntley Fire Protection District Communication Specialist Alex Vucha.

A homeowner advised responding firefighters of a fire inside the closed garage attached to the two-story house.

Firefighters quickly deployed several hose lines while simultaneously confirming all occupants had escaped the house, Vucha said.

Interior fire crews located an active fire inside the garage while searching the house.
