Garage Burns Down to Ground, Damages Homes

February 20, 2017

 

Montgomery County Fire Rescue Service units were called to the scene of a fully involved detached garage in the Fountain Hills neighborhood early Monday morning. The extreme heat from the fire damaged two homes and two nearby garages.

   MCFRS responded to 19018 Noble Oak Drive Drive shortly after 12:30 pm on Monday, Feb. 20. Arriving units found a detached garage and a nearby vehicle at the end of the alley of Noble Oak Court well involved in fire. Shortly after firefighters began extinguishing the fire, the garage’s roof collapsed.

   The heat generated by the fire damaged two nearby houses, including the house at 19018 Noble Oak Drive, and two other close by detached garages. A total of five buildings and one vehicle were damaged. MCFRS Senior Spokesman Pete Piringer said the cause of the fire was misplaced ashes from a fire pit. He estimated the damage to the garage was more than $40,000. No injuries were reported.
