Three fire departments responded to a garage fire on Wrights Ridge Road in Carroll County Monday night.
Carroll County's Westside Fire Department received a report of a garage fire in the 2400 block of Wrights Ridge Road around 8:50 p.m. Fire units found a large garage on fire next to a residence when arriving at the scene, Milton Fire Chief Jason Long said.
Westside Fire Department called for assistance from Trimble County's Milton and Bedford fire units after receiving the call. All three fire departments worked for a couple of hours to put the fire out, Long said.
An all-terrain vehicle, tractor, other items in the garage and the building was a total loss, he said. The nearby residence had no damage.
The fire's cause has not yet been determined, Long said, but the fire may have been caused by a wood-burning stove.
