A fire destroyed a Duluth garage on Thursday morning, according to the Duluth Fire Dept.
Authorities say they responded to 135 Wabasha St. at 10:25 a.m. When fire crews arrived, they say the 14 by 20 foot garage was fully involved.
The fire was so hot, the fire department says, that the vinyl siding of a nearby home was set ablaze. Fire crews were able to protect the home from any further damage. But, officials say the garage and contents were a total loss, with damages estimated at $20,000.
A press release from the Duluth Fire Dept. says the fire was likely caused by a hot lawn mower setting an artificial Christmas tree on fire in the garage.
