UPDATE: The Harlem Fire Department reports a garage attached to the home and two vehicles in the driveway were fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to that portion of the home.

Harlem-Roscoe Fire Chief Don Shoevlin said, "The firefighters made an aggressive attack on the fire and were able to contain most the fire damage to the garage and vehicles."

Smoke detectors had alerted the family and they were safely outside when units arrived. The fire is believed to be caused by a portable heater in the garage.
