Neighbors reported hearing possible explosions.

"It could have been any of the garage contents or there were three cars in the driveway, at least two were heavily damaged so we could have had issues with some of the tires popping," explained Fire Chief Timothy Smith.

No one was hurt. The extent of the damage is unclear at this time.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
