Marion garage fire destroys car


A garage fire at a duplex in Marion destroyed a car on Monday night.

Firefighters were called to 3053 Stone Creek Court just before 9:00 p.m. Monday night for a reported garage fire.

When crews arrived, they found flames coming from the front of the garage.

Firefighters put out the fire in about 30 minutes and were able to keep it from spreading to the rest of the building.  A car that was in the garage was destroyed.

Tom Roberts and his wife were home at the time and made it out safely.  One person was taken to the hospital for a medical condition.

The estimated cost of the damage is unknown at this time.  There was minor smoke damage to the adjoining house and a little bit of smoke in the attic of the other unit in the duplex.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
