“Apparently, a bypasser had knocked on the door and told (the residents) that their house was on fire. But the owner stated that apparently, the garage was on fire at that time,” Riggs said. “We had some firefighters, due to the heat and things like that, have to be checked out by EMS, but no injuries were reported among the firefighters or the residents that required transport to the hospital.”

The cause of the fire has not yet been released.
