RIDGEFIELD - Firefighters battled a fire at the Sphinx bus company garage in Ridgefield earlier today after a bus that was inside caught fire.

Officials say the fire quickly spread to the rest of the garage on Hendricks Causeway.

The owner of the company says that he believes a bus inside caught fire when a mechanic was working on it and that something may have sparked onto a seat.

The area where the bus garage is located is mostly industrial, but there are a few homes across the street.

The owner says he has insurance and plans to rebuild. He says everyone got out of the building safely. So far there is no confirmation from the fire department on what caused the fire.
