Several fire departments responded to a residential fire in the 63300 block of Mulberry Road Wednesday night.
The call came in at approximately 9:15 p.m., dispatchers said.
The home, which is in southwest St. Joseph County, showed damage to the exterior, and Mulberry Road between New Road and Madison Road was closed off, as of about 10:30 p.m.
At least 14 tankers were called to the scene, and NewsCenter 16 learned that the fire started in the garage before spreading to the main house.
Officials say everyone was able to get out of the house, but they are not certain that all the animals living in the house were able to escape.
