Firefighters prevented a blaze from spreading to several homes in Morgan’s Point Resort after a detached garage caught on fire early Monday morning.
Officials said around 2:15 p.m., firefighters were dispatched to a residential structure fire on Whitetail Road after the initial caller reported their neighbor's house was on fire.
A Morgan’s Point Resort Police officer was the first to arrive at the scene. Officials said the officer was instrumental in clearing the adjacent home and assuring all occupants were accounted for.
The first-in Engine Company arrived shortly after and found a large, detached garage fully engulfed.
