Garage and vehicle burn on Thelma Way
A garage and vehicle burned Monday at roughly 4:45 p.m. at 1046 Thelma Way in Grants Pass.
The homeowner called 911 to report a fire had started in the garage and both occupants managed to escape unscathed. Firefighters arriving on scene saw fire quickly spreading from the garage through an open door into the home and they acted quickly to keep the fire contained to the garage. The contents of the garage including a vehicle were a total loss. The interior of the home received smoke damage and it was rendered uninhabitable for the evening. Firefighters say this fire could have been less dangerous if the attached garage had a self-closing door. The cause of the fire is under investigation and anyone with more information about the case should call Fire Inspector Joe Hyatt at 541-450-6200.
