Crews battled a large fire early Monday morning in Longview, authorities said. According to Longview Fire, crews rushed to a home at 2715 Fir St. just after 2:00 a.m. where a detached garage was fully ablaze, with the fire showing the possibility of spreading. Officials said that units were on the scene within five minutes of the original 911 call and they quickly jumped into action, fighting back the flames. The garage sustained serious damage, but officials said that they were able to prevent any spreading, and damage to nearby property was minimal. Longview Battalion Chief Eric Koreis shared that this fire could’ve caused much more damage and stressed the importance of having smoke detectors. “This fire was moments away from spreading to occupied homes,” said Koreis. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
