The man was able to get his vehicle out of a second garage that’s not attached to the garage where the fire was burning.

The Butler Township Station 3 fire chief said it was difficult to fight the fire because a stack of firewood was piled against the house and carport.

The chief would not say if the home was a completely loss or not.
