Flames Destroy Garage, Damage Home in Luzerne County

FOSTER TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A fire destroyed a garage and damaged a home early Monday morning in Luzerne County.

The first alarm along Detweiler Road in Foster Township came in around 6 a.m. Monday.

The fire started in a garage and spread to a home.

The fire chief says the flames had a good start.

"We could see it from the top of the mountain and a second alarm was struck as we saw the column of smoke," said Fearnots Volunteer Fire Chief Michael Spock.

A man and his wife lived there. Both were home when the fire started, and both made it out OK.

No one was hurt, and a state police fire marshal has been called in to help look for the cause of the fire.
