Towering flames engulfed a garage in De Pere early Monday morning. The garage is considered a loss, according to the De Pere Fire Department. At about 2:46 a.m., De Pere firefighters responded to an address on N. Adams Street off Ridgeway Boulevard and Webster Avenue. Crews arrived to find a two-stall detached garage in flames. De Pere's fire chief said the flames were about 30-feet high. Trees were also in flames. "The garage was stocked with vehicles tools and anything else you keep in a garage," says Chief Alan Matzke. "It was burnt through the roof. Trees were all on fire in the back yard, flames were probably about 30 feet in the air." Firefighters evacuated nearby homes out of concern the fire would spread. It took crews about 20 minutes to put out the flames. They continued working on hot spots.
