Two cars and a motorbike were destroyed in a ferocious fire in a detached garage.
Emergency crews were called to Begonia Gardens, Bold Heath, at about 11.15pm on Tuesday, December 23.
The blaze destroyed the contents of the brick-built double garage - including two cars and a motorbike.
Two vehicles parked outside the garage were damaged by heat.
A man and woman were assessed at the scene by paramedics. The man had suffered no ill effects and the woman had suffered slight smoke inhalation and was given oxygen.
Neither required further treatment.
Two neighbours - a man and a woman - were also given precautionary checks by paramedics, along with a young woman.
Fire crews from St Helens, Eccleston, Newton-le-Willows and Whiston were all called to the scene.
The cause of the blaze is yet to be revealed.
