The Ireton Fire Department was called to 4803 Eagle Avenue, shortly before 2:20 Thursday afternoon, for the report of a garage fire.  Ireton Fire Chief Richard Steckelberg says firefighters could see smoke from about a mile away, and when they arrived on scene the garage was totally engulfed.

Steckelberg says damage was limited to the garage and a tractor parked inside.  He says the garage was close to the house, but firefighters were able to get it knocked down before it could reach the house.  The Chief says the farmstead is currently vacant.

Fire crews were on scene for about an hour, according to Steckelberg
