There were no major injuries after a garage burst into flames on Agnes Street Wednesday afternoon.

Fire crews were called to the scene just after 1 p.m. to the 600 block of Agnes, where a detached garage and carport was fully engulfed. The flames then spread to the roof of the adjacent house, before crews were able to control it.
