Fire officials are investigating the cause of a garage fire in Nilestown.

Dorchester fire crews were called to a property on Hamilton Road at Durham Street at around 9 a.m. Monday after receiving a report about a fire at a garage behind a home.

District Fire Chief Tim Churchill told 980 CFPL the fire was fully involved when crews made it to the scene.

“Upon our arrival, the fire had reached the back roof, so we called on Belmount fire station to come and support us,” said Churchill.

It took about 40 minutes for fire crews to extinguish the blaze.

The damage estimate from the fire is currently pegged at $100,000.
