Concern flames had spread beyond the garage

A firewall between a garage and home limited damage inside at a residence on McAvoy Drive near Miller Drive and Dunlop Street in Barrie.

The fire was called in around 3:30 this afternoon.

While the vehicle and garage fire was knocked down, there was initial concern the flames had extended to the attic.

The fire department did not immediately make a damage total available but claim the cause of the fire was accidental.
