Fire consumes Adair County garage

An afternoon fire causes several thousand dollars worth of damage to a garage in Adair County.

The fire broke out just after 2:00 p.m. Wednesday at a residence on Highway AA in Adiar County.

The detached garage, located behind the home, belongs to Clearance B. Walker.

Fire crews from Queen City, Greentop and Adair County Rural Fire responded after a neighbor reported seeing the flames.

Crews were able to contain the fire fairly quickly, however, a 1992 Chevy Silverado, a lawnmower and countless other tools and saddles were consumed in the blaze.

Firefighters tell us the damage was so extensive it may not be possible to determine the cause.
