Asotin County Fire District #1 fire and EMS crews were dispatched to a garage fire at about 1pm Saturday afternoon. Lewiston Fire and Medics also responded through an auto aid partnership to the fire on 24th Street in the Clarkston Heights.
Upon arrival the first crews encountered smoke and a small fire in the southeast corner of the shop. The property owner had taken a hose in and dowsed the fire once before crews arrived, but was driven out of structure by smoke.
The crews quickly knocked the fire down. The cause of the fire was wood near a wood stove that ignited.
There were no reported injuries and minor damage to the shop.
