Jackson Garage Fire Causes $35,000 in Damage

Township fire officials continue to investigate a garage fire that caused an estimated $35,000 in damage late Saturday at 224 Oak Drive NW.

A cause has not been determined for the fire, which broke out around 11:45 p.m. Saturday, but it does not appear to be suspicious, according to Battalion Fire Chief Tim Swonger. The blaze was reported by a neighbor.

The fire started in a hallway between the house and garage, Swonger said, but did not spread to the residence. Firefighters evacuated a resident from the house.

“We extinguished it relatively quickly,” Swonger said. “We had to cut a hole in the garage.”

Heat from the fire damaged several items in the garage, including two motorcycles, but most of the damage was the result of smoke, Swonger said.
