Batavia firefighters battled a garage fire on Thanksgiving afternoon at 541 N. Washington Ave.

Firefighters responded about 11:30 a.m. and remained until about 1 p.m.

The fire was contained to the garage and residents were able to remain in the house on the property after power and natural gas utilities were restored.

Fire officials said drywall was a key factor in containing the fire to the garage area, but the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
