MULBERRY, Ind. (WLFI) — A family is safe after their garage catches fire in Mulberry.
The fire started around 3 p.m. It happened to the detached garage of a home on N. Main Street. An onlooker saw the flames and called 911.
Madison Township firefighters were the first on the scene. Capt. Jack Walker said the garage was fully engulfed when they arrived. It took about 15 minutes to get the fire under control.
The homeowners were inside but were not aware of the fire. One parent told News 18 it was his kids who alerted him but firefighters were already on the way.
Investigators are currently working to determine the cause. The father believes the fire caused anywhere between $50,000 to $75,000 worth of damage. A motorcycle and a large supply of tools were among some of the items destroyed. The homeowner's car was not in the garage at the time because he drove it out earlier in the morning.
Sheffield Township Volunteer and Rossville Volunteer firefighters also assisted in extinguishing the fire.
