Car fire ignites garage


A car fire ignited a garage Sunday morning creating a large blaze and forcing the closure of Glenmore Road for several hours.

The car, garage, other content and much of the homeowners lumber were completely destroyed in the aggressive blaze. 


Emergency crews have been called a fire in 5900 block of Glenmore Road near Lake Country.

Witness Andrews Ryckman said the fire started just before 11 a.m.

Ryckman said a shed was on fire on property that sells firewood and has a Route 66 sign in the front yard. 

He said several fire trucks were called to the blaze.

Thick, black smoke could be seen billowing from the area.
