Fire crews are dealing with a string of fires in Maddox Cove this afternoon — all stemming from a garage fire in the area.

The garage was destroyed. High winds caused the fire to spread to a nearby house, and another garage next door. 

Firefighters brought the fire under control. Forestry crews have headed to Maddox Cove to deal with the brush fire that also resulted from the initial blaze.

A family was home at the time, but there were no injuries reported.

At this point, there is no word on the cause.
