No injuries were reported after a fire left a garage, which had three vehicles inside of it, burnt to the ground in Crystal Lake Saturday afternoon.
The Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department responded around 1:31 p.m. Saturday to the 100 block of Pomeroy Avenue in Crystal Lake for a report of a structure fire.
Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department Deputy Chief Craig Snyder said firefighters arrived on the scene within five minutes.
They found heavy fire conditions in a detached garage, which was located at the rear of a two-story single-family home.
The garage had three vehicles parked inside of it at the time of the fire.
Snyder said fire crews set up a defensive fire attack to extinguish the fire while protecting houses next to it.
A request for additional firefighters was made through the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS).
The upgraded alarm brought several area fire departments to assist at the scene, Snyder said.
Crews were on the scene for over two hours working to extinguish the fire and conduct overhaul operations.
The three-car garage and contents sustained heavy fire, heat, smoke and water damage.
Snyder said power was disconnected to the structure by ComEd and gas was shut off by Nicor.
There were no injuries to any firefighters or residents. The fire remains under investigation.
