SASKATOON -- A deliberately set garage fire in the 800 block of Ninth Avenue North Monday night caused $30,000 in damage, the Saskatoon Fire Department says.

Firefighters used a chainsaw to enter through the overhead door while Saskatoon Light and Power disabled the power line due to fire impingement.

Garages to the north and south sustained damage as well.

No one was hurt.
