Firefighters responded to 1201 Bluefield Ave., in Elizabethton at about 11 a.m. Tuesday to put out the fire.

Police Chief Greg Workman said no one was inside the garage while it was on fire.

Evidence seems to indicate that someone tried to forcibly enter the garage through a rear window, Buckles said.
