Upon arrival, firefighters found the garage ablaze, with fire extending throughout the townhouse, Horist said.

All residents had left the building, Horist said, but firefighters had to remove three cats from the building, including the two that had died.

At least one unit is still uninhabitable, Horist said. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but it is believed to be accidental.
