Darren Doyle, story and photos:
Three different fire departments were paged early this morning to the 500 block of N. Main Street in Brownsville where a garage fire was fully involved.
The fire occurred around 3am on Thursday morning at a detached garage at the Brownsville residence. Firefighters made multiple attempts to see if anyone was inside the home but got no response.
Brownsville Police responded to the home and also made multiple attempts to contact anyone inside. After no one was contacted, police kicked in the door to ensure safety of anyone that might be inside. Shortly after, one resident was taken into custody and transported to a healthcare facility, according to police. The individual was the only one home at the time of the fire.
Police also reported that they had responded to a domestic incident at the same residence around 10pm the night before; however, no details or names were released from that incident.
No injuries were reported at the fire. The garage and its contents were a complete loss. The home also suffered minor damage to the front of the structure. Firefighters remained on scene until after 8am this morning.
The Brownsville, Chalybeate, and Kyrock Fire Departments responded to the fire along with the Brownsville Police Department. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time, according to police.
