Grants Pass, Ore. -- 25 firefighters responded to a garage fire this morning on Southwest J street in Grants Pass.
Grants Pass Fire Inspector, Joe Hyatt, said the homeowner was burning weeds. He thought he put the fire out, and walked away. 20 minutes later he noticed flames coming from his detached garage.
"We made a really aggressive attack. There was a propane tank that was venting so we were concerned about the neighboring houses," Hyatt said.
Although both Grants Pass and Rural Metro Fire contained the fire withing ten minutes it still destroyed the inside of the garage and did minor damage to 2 other homes.
