STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The FDNY is responding to a house fire in Mariners Harbor on Tuesday morning.

The blaze on Albert Court is being fought with an "all-hands" response of about 60 firefighters and 12 units, according to the official FDNY Twitter feed.

No injuries have been reported in the fire, said a spokesman for the FDNY/EMS.

The fire was brought under control, according to the FDNY Twitter feed.

Fire personnel at the scene said they thought the fire started in the boiler room and then rose upward through the walls.

Smoke could be seen rising through the roof.

Several people were seen standing around after they apparently escaped from the semi-attached, two-family home.
