“Once we arrived on scene, that’s when we asked for a couple extra units, we were concerned,” said Brian Lees, district chief, Edmonton Fire Rescue.

Lees also said the wind made it more difficult to fight the flames.

“It was a really good save on the houses to the north and south.”

The garage was completely destroyed along with the contents which, included a car and a boat.

No one was hurt.

Fire investigators are still looking into the cause.
