A bad situation almost turned worse on Wednesday morning when the Owensboro Fire Department says a fully-involved garage fire was endangering multiple homes around it.
According to OFD, crews from Stations 1 and 2 were dispatched to a structure fire in the 1600 block of Glendale Avenue around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
When the first crews arrived at the scene, they confirmed it was a working fire, and an additional unit from Station 4 was called to assist.
OFD says crews found themselves in a tricky situation, as the burning building was a full-involved detached garage that was spreading fire to the home directly in front of it and threatening other homes on both sides.
Through quick decision-making and resource deployment, crews were able to keep the fire from spreading to multiple homes.
OFD says that thankfully, no one was home at the time of the fire. Engine 2, Quint 2, Engine 1, Rescue 1, Engine 4, Fire Command 95, and Safety Officer 97 all responded to the early-morning fire.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
