No one was inside the garage at the time, and it appears the fire’s origin was from a wood-burning stove.

MCSO deputies evacuated nearby residents as a precautionary measure based on the high winds and flying embers. The garage, and the vehicles inside, were a total loss.

The residents returned to their homes at approximately 9:00 p.m., and no injuries were reported.
