An early-morning fire destroyed a detached garage in Lecompton, said Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman.
Lewis said the fire started just after 3 a.m. at 705 Whitfield St. The fire caused an estimated $18,000 in damage making the garage and a shop a total loss, he said.
But it did not damage any other buildings on the residential property, Lewis said.
Lecompton Fire/EMS and crews from other townships responded. Fire investigators were still trying to determine the blaze’s cause Thursday morning, but no one was injured, Lewis said.
