A fire in a garage on Lady's Island last week caused heavy damage to the garage but spared the home it was attached to from any major damage, according to a Lady's Island-St. Helena Island Fire District spokesman.

The fire, in a garage on Middle Road near Coosa Elementary School, was called in to the district around 9:43 a.m. Feb. 9, spokesman Lee Levesque said. Firefighters arrived on scene to find the garage "heavily involved" with fire and spent three hours putting it out, Levesque said.

Damage from the fire was kept to the garage, aside from minor smoke damage in the home. The family living at the home declined Red Cross assistance. No cause for the fire was available.
