An early morning fire in Whitesboro is now under control.

According to Whitesboro Fire Chief Pete Sobel, the call came in just after 5 a.m. Monday for a blaze at a multifamily home on the corner of Goodell Avenue and Main Street.

Sobel says, the call came from a woman on the first floor apartment and she and her children were able to exit the structure safely. Two second floor apartment residents also made it out safely.

The fire is believed to have started on a porch of the home, but the cause and origin are still being investigated.

No injuries were reported.

The Mohawk Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting six people displaced by the fire -- four adults and two children, ages 7 and 16.
