UPDATE, September 4, 3:27 p.m.
Six apparatus and a command vehicle responded to the fire on Saturday, September 3 with a total of 19 personnel. Scott County Communications received multiple 911 calls advising that a garage to the rear of a residence was on fire, but when first responders arrived, they discovered that two detached storage structures on separate properties were heavily involved with fire, with flames extending into the residence as well.
Coordinated efforts from both the interior and exterior of the building brought the fire under control within about 30 minutes. There was heavy fire damage on both properties, but no injuries were reported. The occupants of the residence were not able to return, as living conditions in the building were no longer safe.
The Red Cross assisted the 2 juvenile and 5 adult residents of the home. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Any additional information related to this incident will be released by the Fire Marshal.
