Damage is estimated at $600,000 in a garage fire that spread to two nearby homes on Orchard Avenue in Delhi early Sunday morning.
 
The garage fire was fully involved when Norfolk County firefighters responded to the call at about 2:20 a.m.
 

The home owners, who were sleeping at the time, were able to safely evacuate, he said.

No injuries were reported.

“Thanks to the quick action of the firefighters the fire was brought under control before the homes became engulfed,” said James Robertson, assistant fire chief, in a media release.

Firefighters from Delhi, Courtland, and Simcoe stations responded.

Robertson issued a public reminder about the importance of having working smoke alarms.

“Fire grows and spreads extremely fast, especially when modern construction and modern furniture is involved. Smoke alarms give people a fighting chance to get your family safety evacuated,” he said.  “This morning (Sunday) as you are resetting your clocks for the time change, please spend a couple of minutes and check your smoke alarms.”

The fire remains under investigation.
