The Gibbons Fire Department was hard at work containing a recent blaze.
At around 2:30 a.m. on June 5, the department was called to a garage fire in a back alley in Gibbons. Members were on the scene within about 10 minutes and, with help from Bon Accord crews, started trying to contain the flames.
The fire did not spread past the one structure, though parts of the side of the house did melt from the heat.
"It'd been burning for a bit before we were called. It was a hot fire," said Gibbons fire chief Eric Lowe.
Crews were able to control the fire within 20 minutes.
There were no injuries but the garage was a total loss. With two vehicles and multiple tools inside the building, the total amount of damages is estimated to be over $100,000.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
With the wildfire season underway, Lowe asks residents to be cautious when having backyard fires and to have safety measures in place, like working batteries in smoke detectors, in case an incident does happen.
