The Associated Press

FALMOUTH, Maine — The Falmouth fire chief says an early morning fire in Falmouth destroyed a garage and the eight vehicles inside.

Some of the vehicles were antiques. There were no injuries.

Falmouth Fire Chief Howard Rice says the owner of the house was awoken by an alarm at about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday and saw an orange glow coming from the garage.

The Portland Press Herald says that when firefighters arrived the garage was on fire.

Firefighters used 3,000 feet of hose to bring water from the nearest hydrant and they set up a 5,000 gallon storage tank to hold water used to fight the fire.

The state fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
