Cicero Fire Dept. responds to garage fire

Cicero Fire Department was dispatched to 230 East Buckeye St. at 1:36 pm. this afternoon on a garage fire. The property involved in the fire is owned by Greg Scott who was home at the time of the fire. First arriving fire crews found the garage fully engulfed by flames. Mr. Scott had been working in the garage prior to the fire starting and had been using a wood burning stove as a heat source. The garage and a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire were destroyed by the flames. 

Due to an aggressive attack, fire crews kept the fire from spreading to Mr. Scott’s house and two other homes that were near the garage. The Scott house and two others did have heat related damage to siding and shingles. Cicero Fire was assisted by Jackson Township, Noblesville, Sheridan, Westfield and White River Township Fire Departments. Cicero Police along with Indiana Department of Natural Resources helped with traffic control and scene protection.  

Investigators have determined the fire was accidental in nature. The building was torn down after the conclusion of the investigation as a safety measure. There are no injuries to report as a result of this fire.
