On the evening of 08/01/2022 at approximately 7:30 PM Watertown Fire Rescue was dispatched to 2316 Grant Drive for a garage fire. Watertown Fire Rescue responded with 1-Command Vehicle, 1- ALS Ambulance, and 2-Engines. While responding, units were able to see heavy smoke in the area. Upon arrival, crews found a 3-stall attached garage with heavy smoke and fire coming from it. Engine 4 crews pulled a 2 1/2" hose to quickly knock down the fire. Crews were also assigned to preform a search of the house to make sure there was no fire extension into the home. The main body of the fire was knocked down rather quickly, but crews had to preform extensive overhaul to check for hotspots due to heavy smoke found in the attic. Watertown Fire Rescue remained on scene for approximately 3 hours. The garage suffered heavy fire damage, while the inside of the home suffered slight smoke damage. No injures were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Watertown Fire Rescue was assisted on scene by the Watertown Police Department, and Watertown Municipal Utilities.
