"The passer-by went up knocked on the door and woke the residents up. They evacuated the home," Ready said.

"It seems the fire started in the garage, spread up through the walls into the attic and to a bedroom on the second floor," Ready said.

Ready saod there is extensive fire and smoke damage throughout the home.
 

No one was injured in the fire.

Firefighters from Troy, Madison, and Washington townships and Mansfield provided mutual aid.
