A detached garage went up in flames early Sunday morning in New Bothwell.
Hanover Fire Chief Paul Wiebe says the fire page came down at 3:40 am. Crews responded to the call along Crown Valley Road and Wiebe says they arrived to find a garage engulfed in flames.
"The roof was already fully involved in fire," he notes. "So, our crews extinguished the blaze, stopped it from spreading to other structures."
Firefighters were also able to rescue two dogs and a cat from the burning building.
"So that's great," he says, regarding the pets. "Good for the family."
Wiebe says the garage is a total loss but notes there were no injuries. He says the building was being used for storage, noting there were no vehicles parked inside.
"I believe he was able to salvage some of the contents," adds Wiebe.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Wiebe says the loss is estimated at $175,000.
According to Wiebe, crews were on scene for about four hours.
