PHOTO: A fire early Tuesday morning in the 2700 block of Red Maple Court destroyed a garage and damaged a home, according to Caledonia Fire Battalion Chief Tim St. Amand. Firefighters responded to the house at 3:50 a.m. Tuesday. The fire was under control within about a half-hour, St. Amand said. “It was a well-involved fire when we arrived,” St. Amand said. Residents were home but evacuated before fire crews arrived. Neighbors also evacuated their houses. No one was injured, but one firefighter needed a medical checkup for exhaustion suffered during the blaze, St. Amand said. The fire’s cause was not known late Tuesday morning, nor was there an immediate damage estimate.
