Lawnmower may have sparked Solon fire


A lawnmower is believed to have started a fire in a Solon Thursday morning.

Fire crews were called to the 400 block of Windam Drive around 11:30 a.m.

By the time they arrived, the flames spread from the garage to the home. The garage was attached to the home.

Officials got the fire under control on the second floor and attic to keep it from going to the rest of the home.

The five person family was home at the time and was able to get out safely.

The hot temperatures did cause problems for firefighters rehabbing, but no firefighters were injured.

The house is not considered a total loss. The garage was destroyed.

Iowa City, North Liberty and Ely fire crews all assisted.
