Just after 4am on August 5, the Sykesville Freedom District Fire Department was alerted to the 6300 block of Sykesville Road for a possible structure fire. Crews arrived on scene to find a detached garage fully involved. Crews were able to quickly knock down the fire.

The garage was also close to two houses and a shed causing an exposure concern. Other than burned siding on the exposures, crews were able to prevent the fire from spreading to any other buildings on the property.
