LOWVILLE – A garage was destroyed by a fire in Lowville late Wednesday night, according to Lewis County Emergency Services.
At approximately 11:07 p.m., fire crews were called to 9041 East Rd. in Lowville. Officials say a man was working in a four-stall garage when he noticed fire near the work bench, and he attempted to extinguish it but was unable to, so he called 911.
When the Lowville Fire Department arrived at the scene, the garage was fully engulfed in flames and the eaves of the adjacent barn were smoking. Officials say the barn was saved with minimal damaged, but the garage was a total loss.
