Quickly after the firemen arrived, the main fire was extinguished and it did not spread because of those efforts. Some water flow continued with hoses until the fire was completely extinguished.

The unattached garage did encounter severe damage, but the nearby house was spared. The garage was at the back of the property where the fire occurred.
