The homeowner says the fire happened in a detached garage.

As crews were working on the scene, they became concerned the fire could spread and harm a pig they saw next door.

Crews let the pig out of its enclosure as a precaution.

The homeowner says he lost a car, motorcycle, utility vehicle, and equipment in the fire.

Fortunately, no people or animals were hurt.
