The Evansville Fire Department says a garage and a car were destroyed in a fire early on New Year's Day. 

Firefighters were dispatched to the garage fire, which happened on Cardinal Drive in Evansville around 12:38 a.m. on Friday, after nearby neighbors reported seeing flames. Crews arrived minutes after they were dispatched to find heavy smoke and flames.

According to EFD, the garage was a total loss, as was a car that was exposed to the fire.

A neighboring home to the west of the burning garage also sustained damage to its siding, but no residents were displaced.

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
