Detached garage in Geneva damaged by fire

GENEVA – A detached garage was severely damaged by fire Aug. 10 in the 1000 block of Geneva Drive on Geneva’s east side.

The Geneva Fire Department responded to the incident about 6:16 p.m. for an initial report of an alley garage on fire.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a two-car garage fully involved, and the siding to the garage directly to the east starting to melt, stated a news release from the city.

"Quick deployment of hose lines by firefighters kept the fire from extending to additional structures, and no houses were involved in the blaze," stated the release, which noted nobody was injured from the fire.

There were no cars parked in the garage; however, the structure sustained severe damage, and the contents inside were deemed a total loss, stated the release. The neighboring garage also suffered minor exterior heat damage.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and damage estimates are being compiled.

The St. Charles Fire Department provided assistance to Geneva at the scene.
