Shortly after 8:30 this evening, multiple calls were received for a structure fire on Kentucky Street.  A reinforced alarm was dispatched.  The first arriving crew reported a fully-involved building to the rear of a single story residence.  Firefighters were able to confine the fire to the converted detached garage and protect the main house from any fire damage.  The neighbor's detached garage was only several feet from the burning building and suffered minor burns to the exterior.

Two neighbors fighting the fire with a garden hose were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation and refused transport to the hospital.

The fire destroyed the converted detached garage.  Fire cause is under investigation.  Utility company personnel were called to scene and they investigated the possible illegal use of both gas and electricity.
