emporia fire 3312014

A structure fire was reported at 626 Lincoln St. around 5:30 p.m. today.

Scanner traffic reported that a garage was fully engulfed when fire crews arrived on scene. The reporter on scene reported that law enforcement blocked off the 600 block of Arundel Street as firefighters extinguished the fire on the eastern part of the structure.

Two fire trucks were on Arundel, and one fire truck was on Lincoln.

The garage was pretty much totaled, and the fire spread into through the grass and damaged a little bit of the next door garage at 620 Lincoln St., said Battalion Chief Steve Kuhlmann of the Emporia Fire Department. The fire is out. No injuries were reported.

The Emporia Fire Department is investigating the fire.
