[ARCHIVED] Detached Garage Severely Damaged By Fire

Geneva Fire Department
A detached garage was severely damaged by fire Aug. 10 at 1022 Geneva Drive on the City’s east side.

The Geneva Fire Department responded to the incident at about 6:16 p.m. for an initial report of an alley garage on fire.

Upon arrival, firefighters found the two-car garage fully involved, and the siding to the garage directly to the east starting to melt as well. Quick deployment of hose lines by firefighters kept the fire from extending to additional structures and no houses were involved in the blaze.

Nobody was injured from the fire.

There were no cars parked in the garage. However, the structure sustained severe damage, and the contents inside have been deemed a total loss. The neighboring garage also suffered minor exterior heat damage. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and damage estimates are being compiled.
The St. Charles Fire Department provided assistance to Geneva at the scene.
