Garage Destroyed By Fire Saturday Evening
Fire destroyed the garage and damaged a house at 1430 Burnam Road Saturday evening. Chillicothe Fire Fighters received the call at about 8:20 pm and arrived to find the unattached garage with heavy fire and the nearby house had fire in an attic vent and siding that was melting. The 10 man crew used hand lines and a deck cannon from one of the trucks to attack the fire in a defensive manner because of the presence of ammunition and acetylene tanks. The fire crew was on the scene for about three hours. The cause of the fire was undetermined and the fire marshal was called to investigate.
