According to Ashland Fire and Rescue, the fire happened around 8:30 p.m. after first responders were alerted to a single alarm fire. The garage was in the alleyway between Alison Street and Fairview Street – just east of the library.
Crews say they arrived in time to prevent the fire from spreading to other structures. The homeowners were not in the house at the time and no one was injured.
Though Ashland Fire says it started on the exterior of the structure, an exact cause is still under investigation.
