Freeport Fire Destroys Garage, Damages Home 

A home was damaged and a garage destroyed by fire in Freeport Sunday morning.

The homeowner woke up to flames around 8:30 a.m.

Firefighters say, the fire started in the garage, but spread to the nearby house and a mobile trailer because of heavy winds.

Crews were able to knock down the flames in about 20 minutes, saving much of the home.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, although officials are looking at an electric heater that was in the garage, as well as the mobile trailer.

This was the sixth structure fire in the town of Freeport since November.
