OBSERVER Staff Report

Crews from several fire departments helped battle a blaze that destroyed a garage and damaged other buildings late Saturday in the town of Villenova.

The fire was reported shortly after 8 p.m. at 8959 North Hill Road. South Dayton and Forestville firefighters arrived on scene to find a garage already destroyed.

Due to winds, according to the Forestville Fire Department in a message posted to Facebook, the fire then spread to a nearby barn.

“Crews immediately began fire suppression on the second building with an aggressive attack,” the fire department said. “We were able to stop the fire from spreading any farther than what it had. The house on the other side of the garage that had already (burned) down had melted siding but no extension into the house.”
