(Friday, December 1st) Dover, Ohio – A garage is a total loss after a morning fire on State Route 39.

Dover Fire Captain Brooks Ross says they were called to the confirmed structure fire at 10:30am Friday morning.

“When we got there we already had flames shooting through the roof of the garage. It was only about 10 to 12 feet away from the house. The siding on the house was already starting to melt.”

He notes the garage and the contents are a total loss.

“They did have one vehicle in there and then they had a lot of tools and equipment like that. It’s going to be a pretty substantial loss for the residents.”

Captain Ross adds that no one was injured.
