A garage has been destroyed in a fire at a property on Saxton Rd.

Four appliances were called to the blaze about 6.30pm on Monday night.

Saxton Rd from Nayland Rd to Main Rd Stoke was shut to traffic while the blaze was brought under control.

Stoke Volunteer Fire Brigade station officer Dean Vinicombe said firefighters worked to protect two houses near the shed.

Iron from a roof on a neighbouring property had to be lifted off as a precaution.

The cause of the fire was not known.
