Early morning fire in Hanmer contained to garage

Greater Sudbury Fire Services got quick control of blaze 
Greater Sudbury Fire crews managed to contain a fire on Michelle Drive in Hanmer this morning to a home's detached garage.

Greater Sudbury Fire Service, particularly the crew from Val Therese, quickly got control of an early morning garage fire in Hanmer today.

Deputy Chief Jesse Oshell said the call for service came in around 8:20 a.m. this morning. The fire was located in the detached garage of a home on Michelle Drive in Hanmer.

Four stations were dispatched, Oshell said, but the Val Therese crew arrived first and were able to get the fire under control quickly and keep it contained to the garage.

Oshell said he has not yet inspected the interior of the structure, so he can’t say how extensive the smoke and flame damage is, so a damage estimate was unavailable this morning. 

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

This is the second fire GSFS has battled this week. On Monday night, one person was injured in an apartment fire on Frood Road that is being investigated as arson.
