New Year's Day fire breaks out in Stewartville

STEWARTVILLE, Minn. (KTTC)  -- A garage is destroyed and two homes are partially damaged after a fire ripped through them early Thursday morning.

According to the Stewartville Fire Department, the fire broke out just before 7 o'clock on the 200 block of 3rd Street SW in Stewartville.

Crews were on scene for about two hours, as heavy smoke continued to fill the air. Water from the hoses that was used to put out the blaze froze into a sheet of ice on the street, making it difficult to get around the area.

No one was injured.

The garage is a total loss, and damage to both homes is estimated to be at least $75,000.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
