No injuries reported from DeKalb garage fire on Sunday


No one was injured in a fire inside a garage in DeKalb on Sunday evening.

DeKalb firefighters were sent to 212 River Drive just after 6 o’clock, for a report of a fire in a detached garage; it apparently started due to an incompletely extinguished fire from a fire pit in the back yard.

Fire personnel worked to keep the blaze from spreading to the adjoining house and neighbor’s garage; it was brought under control in about 15 minutes, and damage was confined to the garage…with some heat damage to the one next door.

Damage is estimated at around $40,000; the cause was ruled to be accidental.
