Wood coals cause garage fire, deputies say
Homeowner puts fire out before firefighters arrive
MADISON, Wis. — Investigators say wood coals from a pizza oven caused a garage fire that the homeowner extinguished using a garden hose.
The Black Earth Fire Department was called to 8925 Table Bluff Road in the town of Berry at 1:18 a.m. Tuesday for a report of a residential garage fire.
Dane County deputies said the fire started when extinguished wood coals from a pizza oven were placed in a plastic bucket in the garage, causing a gas can to ignite.
The fire damaged the outside wall of the attached garage and a car doing about $35,000 in damage.26414840
