DeKalb Home Damaged in Garage Fire


A Saturday evening garage fire leaves a Dekalb family homeless.

The Dekalb Fire Department was called to 628 Krpan Court just after 4 p.m. Saturday for reports of smoke coming from the garage. When they arrived, they found the entire garage engulfed in flames. Once they extinguished the fire, crews found it had been started by a lawn mower being repaired inside the garage.

No one was hurt, but the home was severely damaged. The Red Cross helped find a place for the family to stay.
