No injuries from garage fire in Southington early this morning


SOUTHINGTON — Fire crews responded to a garage fire early this morning and were able to keep the fire contained with no injuries.

Fire crews were dispatched about 1:10 a.m. to the home at 35 Woodriff St. for a report of a garage fire, Lt. Glenn Dube said. When crews arrived a detached garage at the rear of the property was fully involved, Dube said. The fire was quickly put out, but a car in the garage was destroyed, Dube said. The fire did not spread to the home or any of the neighboring homes, and there were no injuries, Dube said. The cause of the fire is under investigation, Assistant Chief and Fire Marshal Thomas Wisner said the fire is not being considered suspicious, but the garage, car and other items in the garage will be a total loss. The structure was between 75 and 80 years old, Wisner said. Fire officials are waiting for the insurance company to come to the scene, Wisner said.

The residents will not be displaced by the incident, Dube said. Crews cleared the scene about 2:40 a.m.
