Garage fire in South Bend


Emergency crews are on the scene of a garage fire in South Bend right now.  The fire broke out around 7:45am near Ford St. and Edison.

The owner of the home's son, Ray Patnaude, say the owner was trying to start his car to go to 8:00am mass  when the car "exploded."  "He was in the car, I was really happy for that," Patnaude said, "and he was able to get out, I think mostly he was just scared."

The man was able to get a fire extinguisher from his house.

Fire crews arrived at the scene and were able to get the fire out, but the garage is a total loss.  The owner was not seriously injured in the fire, and the house suffered some minor damage.
