Erie, PA – Fire crews worked much of the mid morning hours on a garage fire at 5144 Old French Road. Smoke from the blaze could be seen for miles around. It is believed there are some automobiles inside along with auto parts that could be contributing to the dark smoke billowing from the structure.

Immediate concern was containing the fire to the garage so no adjoining structures would also catch fire. Crews appear to be successful in that fight but the garage looks to be a total loss.

Erie Fire Department crews remain on the scene. Old French Road road was closed for a period of time while the fire departments worked on the blaze.

A Millcreek garage fire at 1173 E. Arlington Road destroyed three cars and a motor home just after 1am Saturday morning.

The Trudeau’s woke up to find their two-story detached garage engulfed in flames.

“Our daughter woke us up, she said the garage was burning. Then we came out here and it was really burning,” said Richard Trudeau.

Wind fueling the fire put the houses on both sides at risk.

“Wind is the reason for the exposure trouble, it was fanning the fire,” said Belle Valley fire chief Chris Altadonna.

“The flames were pretty high and the smoke was the darkest smoke that I’ve ever seen. You could tell the wind was just catching it,” said Cathy Reese, a neighbor of the Trudeau’s.
