St. Charles garage fire causes $30,000 in damage
A garage fire caused an estimated $30,000 in damage Tuesday afternoon in St. Charles, officials said.
No injuries were reported.
Firefighters arrived at 4:12 p.m. and found heavy fire on the exterior of a garage on the 900 block of Jackson Avenue; the garage had been converted into a single-unit apartment building. The fire was out in about 15 minutes, authorities said.
The cause of the fire is attributed to unattended open burning, officials said.
One of the two residents of the apartment was there at the time but was able to escape without injury and call 911.
The garage and a nearby vehicle were damaged in the fire, officials said.
The St. Charles Fire Department was assisted by the Geneva and Batavia fire departments.
