Fire truck responding

A garage fire Sunday was extinguished quickly; but, structural damage is nearly $50,000.

Around 1:25am, Grand Ridge firemen were called to a house and attached garage five miles east of Leonore. Combustible materials around a wood stove started burning in the garage. The walls and ceiling took on damage; the fire was struck in about 15 minutes.

Two occupants got away safely, however, their home received heavy smoke damage. The garage is considered fixable.

Leonore and Marseilles were called; they were sent back before they arrived.
