TROY — A multi-car garage is a total loss following a Monday evening fire.

Troy firefighters were dispatched on a reported structure fire in the 400 block of Lincoln Avenue around 7:15 p.m. on Monday, April 15.

Arriving police and fire units reported the garage as “fully-engulfed” and one person apparently injured nearby.

Fire units began to attack the blaze while paramedics and police offices treated, then transported, one victim who, according to neighbors, had entered the burning structure and attempted to douse the flames. The female victim was transported by Troy Fire Department paramedics and transferred to the Burn Unit at Miami Valley Hospital. Her condition is listed as “improving” according to Troy Fire Department Assistant Chief Don Pemberton.

AES responded to the scene to turn off power while firefighters finished putting out the fire.

Fire investigators were on the scene until after 11 p.m. looking for a cause of the fire and returned on Tuesday morning. The State Fire Marshal’s Office has been called to assist in the investigation.

Pemberton said that officials are still assessing the damage but at least six other exposures sustained damage from the blaze.
