Fire Sets Leeds Homeowner's Garage Damaged; Leaves Total Loss

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, IA -

The fire department responded to a garage fire shortly before 1 p.m. Friday afternoon.

Authorities say three engines and two companies were dispatched to 3800 block of Jefferson Street in the Leeds neighborhood.

Upon arrival, officials say the garage's roof quickly collapsed onto the main floor of the structure.

The damage is being considered as a total loss, with both a motorcycle and car burned inside the garage.

Sioux City Fire Marshal Mark Aseoph said this type of fire tends to move quickly.
 
"The radiant heat from a fire this large will travel long distances. There was no direct flame contact between... to the other structure. It was just the radiant heat that actually did the damage," said Aseoph
 
No one in the home was injured.

Officials say no foul play is suspected at this time.
