A garage fire back in the woods of Ardentown also damaged a house on Monday, July 8, 2019.

Claymont firefighters were called out around 5:30 a.m. for a fire in a detached garage on Orchard Road.

When they arrived they found the garage fully engulfed at the end of a long driveway and impinging on the back of a house on Loreley Lane.

The heat from the fire did ignite the back of the house but the residents inside were able to escape safely.

The Red Cross was called in to assist two adults and two children from that home.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating.
