CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Multiple crews were on the scene at a garage and house fire in Cape Girardeau County.

The home is on County Road 206.  The call came in at 11:11 a.m. for a garage fire.

Crews were battling strong winds along with the flames.  Everyone got out okay.  Crews say the home suffered extensive smoke and fire damage.

According to Chief Rick Ennis, the fire was out as of 3:30 p.m.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Missouri State Fire Marshal.

Call came in at 11:11 for a garage fire.  It was fully involved when crews arrived.

The home owners had added on to the home's original roof and the fire was trapped between old and new roof, according to crews on the scene.

A mayday call was made at one point because two firefighters became disoriented due to smoke and heat. The fire chief called everyone out of the structure and did a head count, and everyone was fine. He says this is normal procedure.

Units from Whitewater Fire Protection District, Jackson Fire Rescue, Millersville Fire District, Fruitland Area Fire District, Delta Fire Protection District, Sikeston Dept. of Public Safety, and Scott City Fire Department all assisted in fighting the fire.

The county road was blocked off to traffic.

The homeowner, Diane Edwards says she is just happy everyone is safe.

There is a barn with horses behind the home, but it was not damaged and horses not hurt.

Crews expect to be on scene for next couple of hours.

Some firefighters treated with oxygen on the scene because of heat and working quickly.

The homeowner says she was at work, and her husband was out of town, when someone called the fire in.

They moved into the home in 1985 and have four children.  The children who were in the home all got out okay.

Edwards says family cat might have minor burns.
