“We’ve had a minor fire inside a garage at a residence, no injuries,” said Wood. “The people, by the looks of it, should be allowed back into the house.”

It doesn’t appear suspicious and Wood said and the cause is currently unknown.

Fire prevention officers are currently investigating, said Wood.
