Garage Fire Near Eldridge, Iowa


The bitter cold temperatures made it tough for crews battling an early morning garage fire near Eldridge, Iowa.

The fire broke out just after midnight in the 21,000 block of North Brady Street.

Officials say the fire totaled a towing vehicle in the garage as well as equipment for a home business.

Long Grove and Eldridge crews were able to quickly get that fire under control but Dave Engler with the Eldridge Fire Department says the cold weather was a factor.

"I try to keep guys warm as we can and then with the hoses we have to keep the water moving or it will freeze on us, so just one more thing to make it a little difficult tonight."

Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.
