  A fire that might have started in the garage of a house on the 9500 block of Fernwood Road left significant damage and forced occupants out on Sunday afternoon. Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services spokesman Capt. Scott Graham said people in the house smelled smoke in the garage and called 911. There were no injuries and the cause of the fire was under investigation as fire crews remained on scene Sunday evening. The house sits along a private road on a hill above the Old Georgetown Swim Club, where crews were stationed to access the back of the house. A resident on the road said everybody in the house was fine.
