The nearby house was saved and nobody was injured according to Rawdon Fire Department Captain Chris Bond.
“We were called to the scene around 12:30 a.m., it was a total loss of the garage,” he said. “Nobody was inside the garage at the time of the fire, the homeowner was at home asleep at the time, a passerby alerted him to the fire.”
Bond said Rawdon, Gore and Brooklyn responded to the scene and Nine Mile River sent a truck as backup to the Rawdon station.
“The biggest challenge was actually the humidity,” he said. “It was hard to keep things circulated, but we didn’t have any injuries.”
Bond said EHS responded to the scene as well as a precaution.
Brooklyn Fire Chief Andy McDade said a vehicle inside the garage was the cause of the blaze.
“We saved the house, so couldn’t have asked for much better,” McDade said.
