Decatur Fire Department responds to Wednesday evening house fire
DECATUR - The Decatur Fire Department says two adults were displaced after a house fire on the city's southeast side Wednesday evening.
Fire officials say crews were dispatched to a home in the 3600 block of East Maynor Street at about 6:13 p.m. Upon arriving, firefighters say heavy fire was showing from the front of the home's attached garage.
Officials say firefighters entered the building and extinguished the structure fire, but a gasoline-fed vehicle fire required the use of AFFF foam to smother the flames.
The Decatur Fire Department says the fire caused $20,000 in damage to the structure, and $38,000 to the structure's contents and four vehicles. No one was harmed as a result of this fire. The origin and cause of this fire is under investigation.
We will provide more information as it becomes available.
