fire engines, a ladder truck and two rescue units plus a fire truck
and ambulance from Sheridan on the scene.
The firefighters made sure the fire was limited to the garage
and crews had the fire out and there area checked for hot spots in
about 45 minutes.
However, there was concern about power lines in the garage area
so Englewood police blocked off the alley behind the house until a
crew from Xcel Energy arrived to check it out and give the all
-clear to reopen the alley.
The fire damage was limited to the garage and car port.
Estimated damage to the garage, car port and contents was estimated
