Garage catches fire in Patoka

Posted: Updated:

It was a close call Friday night for one Patoka family.

A garage fire broke out at their River Rd property, very close to their mobile home.

It only took White River Township Volunteer Fire Department and units from Patoka Fire Department 10 minutes to put out the fire but because of the layers, they're going to continue looking for hot spots.

The fire started in a detached garage in the back that was mainly used for storage.

It spread to the back corner of the mobile home and completely destroyed a portion of it.

No one in the family was hurt.

The only injury came from Patoka Chief Mike Berry who slipped on some steps and hurt his ankle.
