Published 10:03pm Monday, May 20, 2013

Suffolk firefighters saved a house from destruction when a nearby three-car garage caught fire Sunday evening.

Two antique vehicles were lost in the fire, and several windows of the house broke because of the heat coming from the garage.

Firefighters received the first report of the fire in the 100 block of Kings Point Drive at 6:23 p.m. They arrived to find heavy fire coming from the garage.

The homeowner was able to remove one of the three vehicles that had been in the garage when the fire broke out. The other two, as well as other equipment, were declared a total loss.

One firefighter suffered minor injuries and was treated at Sentara Obici Hospital. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Fire Marshal.
