Capt. Micky Bird and the crew of Engine 1 quickly arrived and found multiple items burning directly in front of the garage. The fire was quickly knocked down, however, firefighters had to perform extensive overhaul to ensure there was no extension to the home.

One firefighter was transported to Tobey Hospital for treatment of a heat related issue.
