A garage that was attached to a home west of Arkansas City, caught fire early in the morning last Sunday morning. Multiple fire departments responded just after 4am to 5431 276th Drive, where those living there, were first alerted by a smoke alarm in the garage, where a gas grill and a vehicle were found ablaze. Although some smoke damage was reported in the house, no flames reached the living quarters. The garage was said to be a total loss, and the family was given the option of goint to a hotel temporarily courtesy of the Ark City Ministerial Alliance, but they declined that offer. The cause of the fire remains under investigaiton.
