Monday Garage Blaze In Spencer

Spencer, IA (KICD)–A Monday afternoon blaze totalled a garage and the contents inside.
Spencer Fire Chief Doug Duncan tells KICD News they brought out three pumper trucks to 704 West 5th Street at approximately 4:00 p.m.  The garage was fully engulfed when personnel arrived and radiated enough heat to melt some vinyl siding on a home roughly 30 feet away.
