Firefighters battled strong winds and heavy flames while fighting a garage fire late Monday night, Dec. 30, 2019. Coolspring Township firefighters were dispatched to the structure fire in the 7000 W block of Oakmeadow Drive shortly before 9 p.m. Coolspring Fire Chief Mick Pawlik, who lives a few doors away, arrived within one minute and found a detached two-story garage heavily involved in fire.
Mutual aid was summoned from Center Township and as firefighters arrived they took a defensive position as the structure, which was behind the residence, was fully engulfed.
The residents were home at the time of the fire and the homeowner reported that he was walking out to the garage from the residence when he smelled smoke and saw fire; he then called 911.
It took approximately 45 minutes for the fire to be brought under control. The cause is unknown at this time.
