The fire happened around 10:30am.
A cause has not yet been determined.
Nearly a half dozen fire departments were on site, including Brookside, which was literally right down the road from where the fire happened.
Crews were able to knock out the fire quickly.
No one, besides the firefighter, was injured.
The fire did not spread to the home; the garage is considered a loss.
