Car Fire Damages Greenwich Garage

Car Fire Damages Greenwich Garage

An alert resident is credited with calling 911 to report a neighbor's Round Hill Road garage was on fire Monday night.

According to Deputy Greenwich Fire Chief Tom Nixon said that when fire crews arrived after the 6:22 p.m. call from the neighbor, "there was a fully involved car fire inside" a three-car garage. There was a breezeway connecting the garage to the house, Nixon said.

Four engine crews, a ladder and a squad crew responded to the fire which also caused moderate to severe damage to items stored in the garage, Nixon said.  "There wasn't any damage to the main house. It was limited to the garage," Nixon said.

No one was injured in the fire which is under investigation by the fire marshal's office. Firefighters remained on the scene until 8 p.m.
