GFD Responded to Garage Fire Over Weekend

On November 14th at approximately 1:50am Greencastle Firefighters received reports of a structure fire on 2640 South County Road 25 West in Greencastle. When firefighters arrived on scene they found a garage that was completely engulfed in flames. Firefighters fought the blaze for about an hour before the fire was under control. Investigations revealed that the fire was caused by two men who were attempting to start a fire in a wood stove. They used denatured alcohol to start the wood fire and, as a result, the fire flashed and burned the two men who both required emergency medical attention.
