Crews quickly extinguished the fire and were able to keep it from spreading to the nearby home.

Officials said it appears a portion of the garage was used as a workshop. The only vehicle inside the garage was a four-wheeler, according to Shift Commander Dale Maynard.

“Both the outside and inside of the garage were burned pretty good,” said Maynard.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
