Town of Nanticoke, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Crews were called out to a garage fire early Thursday.

Crews from the Glen Aubrey Fire Department were called out at approximately 5:15 a.m. to 7 Preston Drive.

An SUV parked in the garage caught fire and flames spread to the structure.

Glen Aubrey called fire crews from the town of Chenango, Nanticoke and town of Maine.

The garage is attached to a house, but firefighters were able to extinguish the flames within 25 minutes, saving most of the garage and the house.

A man living in the home was in the garage at the time of the fire trying to get the SUV out, but was unsuccessful.

He was able to escape safely with no injuries, and the SUV was towed out.

Broome County fire investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
