Washington firefighters were assisted by at least five mutual aid companies at this working house fire in the 100 block of Cherry Hills Court Tuesday morning outside Washington.

One person was home when the blaze started and the resident and family pets got out safely. The fire is believed to have started in the garage and as of now, no injuries have been reported. As of 9:15 a.m., the fire was under control.

The Missourian will have more details as they are available.
