Crews quickly extinguish garage fire

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 12:01 am

Fort Wayne Fire Department crews quickly extinguished a fire on the city's south side Tuesday, but not before the blaze caused heavy damage to an unattached garage.

Crews responded at about 1:07 p.m. to a home in the 300 block of Fleming Avenue, where they found fire coming from an unattached garage at the rear of the home, according to a news release.

Firefighters contained the blaze and quickly extinguished it, the news release said. No one was at home at the time of the fire, which caused heavy flame and smoke damage to the garage. The fire is under investigation.
