A Dorval bungalow will need extensive repairs after being nearly gutted by a fire overnight.

The fire began around 10:30 p.m. at a house on Surrey Ave.

The lone occupant of the home was able to get outside without being injured.

Firefighters say the fire began in the garage and spread to the roof and the rest of the building, causing an estimated $300,000 in damage.

The exact reason the fire began is not yet clear.
