(Atlantic) A garage fire in Atlantic is under investigation this morning.
Atlantic Fire Chief Mark Mcnees says they were called to 403 Birch Street at around midnight.
“When we arrived the east side of the garage was fully involved,” explained Mcnees. “We got it knocked down and the investigation continues this morning.”
Mcnees says the house was vacant at the time.
“There was a moving company cleaning out the house Thursday but they were not in the garage,” Mcnees said. “Right now I am trying to get in touch with the moving company to find out who lived there so that I can interview them. I know they are from out of state and have moved on.”
Mcnees says the garage and its’ contents sustained extensive damage.
He says at this time he is looking at several possibilities that might have caused the fire and will proceed from there.
Mcnees would like anyone with information in regards to this fire to contact the Atlantic Police Department.
