A Saturday afternoon garage fire on Mill Street was limited primarily to external damage.

Watertown firefighters at 3:10 p.m. were called to the Alberta A. Pitkin residence, 819 Mill St.

They were able to extinguish the blaze before it caused damage to the interior of the garage or its contents, according to city fire officials.

The fire was caused when cigarette butts burned through a container beside the structure and ignited an exterior wall, firefighters said.
