The call came it at about 10:15 P.M. reporting a garage burning to the ground. Neighbors were the first to see the smoke and called 911.
The fire was spreading so fast that crews from Fire District 5 were using water on the outside of the garage, and chainsaws to make holes so firefighters wouldn’t need to enter the collapsing building.
First reports indicated there might have been an elderly man inside the building, but that turned out not to be the case.
So far, no one is reported hurt.
Engines from Fire District 3 are still on the scene. Crews will investigate the cause when the fire is out.
