THUNDER BAY – There was extensive damage to a garage as a result of a fire at a South High Street address earlier this afternoon. A large black plume of smoke from the fire could be seen from across much of the city. The fire started at about 2:00PM EDT. A neighbour told NNL that he was sleeping after working a night shift, he heard crackling and woke up and called 911.

Fire crews responded quickly, and the blaze was quickly brought under control. There is however damage to the house and to the home beside it, as a result of heat from the fire. There were no people in the home when the garage caught fire.

Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of the blaze. Three units of Thunder Bay Rescue responded to the fire.
