Fire destroys garage in Plainview

Posted:
PLAINVIEW, Minn. (KTTC) -- Fire destroyed a garage Tuesday in Plainview.

Fire crews responded at about 9:30 p.m. to the 22000 block of County Road 25.

The family's TV stopped working and Victoria Peters went to check the fuse.
 
That's when she said she heard a pop.

"I looked outside my window and see a lot of orange and yellow, so I opened the door and saw a bunch of flames. I yelled 'there's a fire, call 911' and then my parents took over," Peters said.

The detached garage was engulfed.

Peters said the flames reached a nearby electric pole and tree.

Crews responded and were able to put the fire out within about 25 minutes. The garage appeared to be heavily damaged, but no word on the extent.

No one was hurt.
