Fire crews in Halifax were kept busy before dawn Sunday.

“Engine One arrived to find a detached garage building fully involved and impinging on the main house,” Fire Captain Jeff Cuozzo told WATD News.  

“The garage itself — the detached garage — was a total loss in the fire.”

The husband and wife who were in the home at the time of the fire were able to get out safely, with some help from neighbors.

“The neighbor was up around that time and noticed a glow from their neighbor’s house and proceeded to call 9-1-1,” said Cuozzo.

Cuozzo says the house itself sustained only minor damage with “electrical issues.”

Cuozzo also says “the home won’t be habitable for a few days, but they will be able to move back in soon.”

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
