AMHERST, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- A fire fully engulfed a garage this morning in Amherst and will now have to be knocked down, the fire department says.
According to Amherst Fire Chief Tim Nelson, they were called to 52 Fearing St. for the fire. This was just before 7 a.m. Sunday.
When firefighters arrived the garage was already engulfed in flames.
Nelson says they had some trouble accessing the garage to knock the fire down because of 3 'abandoned' cars in the driveway.
Once the cars were moved, firefighters were able to put out the flames.
But Nelson says they are now bringing in a backhoe to knock the building down so they can completely extinguish the flames.
Right now, we're being told there are some hot spots still.
Luckily, no injuries have been reported.
Nelson says the garage was full of items so firefighters were not sent inside to battle the flames for safety reasons.
It is a detached garage.
No word yet on the cause of this fire.
