The fire occurred around 9 p.m. off Legate Drive, Chief New said. He added that the detached garage fire was fully involved when firefighters arrived and it did encounter serious damage.
“There were a bunch of mobile homes near there,” Chief New said. “The trailer next to the garage suffered only a little damage because of the quick hit. I am always proud of our firefighters. It was a cold night, but all of them were OK. Any time there is extremely cold weather you were about the firefighters' safety and the equipment. The firefighters did a fantastic job last night.”
