CHINA, Maine (WABI) - A garage was destroyed by fire in China.

Authorities say several departments responded to the blaze on Pleasant View Ridge Road just after 5 Monday evening.

We're told no one was home at the time, and that no injuries were reported.

Authorities say the house could have been lost as well if not for a quick response.

"The fire burned the siding off of the outside of the house but it got into the roof and went into the upstairs, but we were able to knock it down. It was a really good save. They're going to be able to save that house, so I was very impressed," said China Fire Chief Tim Theriault

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
