Garage Fire on Lincoln Ave. in Rockford

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Firefighters battled a garage fire Friday afternoon on Rockford's west side.

The fire broke out in the 400 Block of Lincoln Avenue around 3:00 p.m. When firefighters got the scene the roof on the detached garage had already collapsed. The fire did not spread to the home but did melt its siding. We're told a wood burner could have sparked the fire. It caused around $40,000 in damage. No one was hurt.
