Fire units respond to Braceville fire Saturday

BRACEVILLE - The Braceville Fire Protection District was alerted to a fire on David Drive at about 1:30 p.m. on Saturday according to Capt. Micheal Nicola.

"Braceville arrived to find a car fully involved with extension to the 2 car attached garage. Crews used the deck gun to make a quick stop on the fire and limit fire and water damage," Nicola said.

He said it appears the fire started with the car and spread to the garage.

The fire was contained to the garage area of the home and residents are safe.

Braceville was assisted by Coal City, Wilmington, Braidwood, Gardner, Morris, Dwight, and South Wilmington Fire Protection Districts.

Elwood, Essex, and the MABAS division 15 were used as investigators.
