Investigators found discarded smoking materials were the likely cause of the fire, which occurred Dec. 16.

No one was injured in the garage fire at 1519 Dock Place off Dorsett Dock Road in Point Borough, according to Deputy Fire Chief Robert Woardell, though two residents were home at the time.

The fully involved structure fire required the response from multiple fire departments, including Laurelton in Brick Township
