The cause of a Wednesday fire that damaged a garage and home in Superior remains under investigation. At 6:05 p.m. Wednesday, the Superior Fire Department responded with three engine companies and a command car to a report of a structure fire in the area of North Fifth Street and Fisher Avenue with flames and smoke showing from a garage and house, according to Battalion Chief Vern Johnson. The first crew on scene reported the garage was fully involved and flames were showing on the back corner of the house. They quickly extinguished the fire on the house and then turned their fire streams on the garage. Subsequent arriving crews supplied additional water from a hydrant and searched the house for occupants and fire extension, finding neither in the interior. The garage fire was quickly knocked down. Damage estimates are $5,000 to the house and $25,000 to the garage. No one was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported, Johnson said. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
