TOWN OF FLOYD — A detached garage on New Floyd Road was destroyed by flames Wednesday morning. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Floyd Fire Chief John Stark said they received the alarm from a passer-by for 8489 New Floyd Road at about 9:10 a.m. The garage was fully involved when firefighters arrived. Mutual aid was received from Stittville Fire Department, and AmCare Ambulance was placed on stand-by.
It took about 15 minutes for firefighters to get the blaze under control. Stark said owner Daniel Kotary used the garage as a workshop, with gas cans and air compressors stored inside.
The garage and its contents were deemed a total loss, the chief said.
