Firefighters were able to subdue the flames with an “aggressive interior fire attack,” the release said. While the space above the garage, second floor and attic sustained heavy damage, an addition to the back of the house only sustained minor damage.
An investigator found that the fire began outside the house, near a trash can. The cause has not yet been determined and is still under investigation. No injuries were reported, including the two dogs.
