Providence firefighters battled a garage fire for hours Saturday night.

It broke out just after 9:00 p.m. inside a garage on Althea St. and spread into the apartments above.

Everyone was out of the building upon arrival but there is extensive damage, especially to the second floor.

2 firefighters were transported to the hospital with minor injuries, but were released.

1 adult has been displaced.

There is no word yet on the cause of this fire, but officials did say that dry air, low humidity, and high winds create dangerous conditions and will cause any fire to extend quickly.

The cause is still under investigation.
