ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Several area fire departments were called out to a four alarm fire in Machesney Park Friday morning. 

Firefighters were called out to the 1400 block of Fenceline Drive just before 11 a.m. Friday for a structure fire. Firefighters say they believe the fire started in an attached garage, then spread to the rest of the home. 

The house is a total loss.  

A second neighboring home also caught fire.

Firefighters say one person was inside the first home at the time of the fire, but they got out safely. No injuries have been reported.

A mutual aid fire call went out to multiple area fire departments. Firefighters from 14 different fire departments were called to the fire.

The Red Cross is now assisting the families who have been displaced by the fire.

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
