    Well it happened again, another detached garage up in flames. 5 days later almost the same scene-different address on the other side of town, but this time had extension into the residence due the radiate heat, little damage to the house.
    Hope this not a trend starting to happen.

    Till next time, they light-em, we fight-em.
