A vehicle fire inside an east Ottawa garage caused $100,000 damage to the attached buildings' contents Saturday night.

Ottawa fire crews said they were called to a six-unit housing complex at 968 Gosnell Terrace at 8:17 p.m. after smoke was seen coming from the garage.

Firefighters were able to limit the fire to the garage and knock it down by around 8:40 p.m., but had to force their way into the attached unit and one next door to get access.

Smoke caused $100,000 damage to the contents of the two units and around $10,000 damage to the building.
