Firefighters are searching for answers as to how a garage was torched in Horseheads, Thursday night.

 Around 6 p.m., multiple fire departments responded to a home on Ridge Road in the Town of Horseheads. They found a fire burning the inside of a garage that was disconnected from the residence. 

Firefighters were able to douse the flames in under an hour thanks to teamwork of the Breesport, Horseheads, Town and Country, and Elmira Heights Fire Departments. 

“Right now, we’re in the overhaul stage” Captain Jeff Sweet, of the Town and Country Fire Department, said. “We’re going to go through the whole garage, make sure everything is pulled out, all the hot spots are hit, make sure everything is cool before we leave.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation tonight.
