Dispatchers received the call at 5:08 p.m., and when crews arrived at the scene they found a two-story detached garage in flames. Crews initially made entry to the structure but were removed due to a collapse of the second floor.

The fire was put under control at 5:59 p.m. No injuries were reported.

Responding crews included the Smithfield Volunteer Fire Department, Carrollton Volunteer Fire Department and Isle of Wight Rescue Squad.

The cause of the fire is unknown. Crews are still on the scene investigating.
