Firefighters were called out for a report of a garage on fire. When they arrived, firefighters were faced with a detached garage fully involved with fire that had also spread to a mobile home. Fire crews were hampered by heavy winds in the area, with gusts up to 45mph. Two family members were treated on scene but refused to be transported to the local hospital. Due to the heavy winds, crews were on scene for four hours battling the fire.  Five people and multiple pets were displaced and are being assisted by the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army. Three family birds perished in the fire. There were no other reported injuries.
