PORTSMOUTH -- Fire badly damaged the garage of a Portsmouth house.

Crews were called to the 5000 block of Deep Creek Blvd. around 9:25 a.m. and the road was blocked in the area for the firefight.

Smoke and flames rose from the two-story building that was filled with items, said Chief Mike Stockton told

'It was fully involved. There was a lot of damage to the contents and the garage, but it didn't spread to the home,' he noted.

Investigators are now working to determine what sparked the fire.

No one was hurt.
