Cambridge, NY (WRGB) -- Cambridge Police Chief George Bell tells us crews are on the scene of a house fire on the corner of Division & Spring St in Cambridge.

Cambridge Fire Chief Tom Gray says the home belongs to firefighter Robert Green, who's been with the department for about 15 years. Chief Gray says no one was home when the fire started; Green had already left for work, and his son wasn't home either. Unfortunately, the family's cat and dog didn't make it out.

Chief Gray says he thinks the fire started on the first floor, but the cause is under investigation.

A family friend says if you would like to help Green or his family, check the Cambridge Fire Department Facebook page. They'll post items you can donate or ways you can help.
