A garage fire caused by a vehicle was quickly put out by Battle Creek firefighters Saturday evening. Crews responded at 7:40 to 298 Hamblin Avenue and found thick black smoke coming from a single story commercial building. A K-12 Fire Saw was used to remove two garage doors to gain access to the fire determined to be coming from an F-350 contractor van. Investigators determined the fire was caused by an accidental ignition of a fuel tank being removed from the vehicle. No injuries were reported in the accident.
