Fire departments from Syracuse, Unadilla and Dunbar were on scene for two hour for a structure fire at 913 Midland St. in Syracuse at 8:30 Wednesday morning, according to Chief Craig Hemji.

No injuries were reported and all individuals and animals in the house escaped safely before first responders arrived.
