Fire Marshal: Fish cooker starts Brownwood fire, garage heavily damaged


BROWNWOOD, Texas - A Brownwood garage was heavily damaged by fire Tuesday after a fish cooker - placed between a house and the garage - hadn't been turned off.

Fire Marshal Buddy Preston said a man made it out of the home safely after he had forgotten to turn the cooker off "before going to bed - and it lit the garage on fire."


Four fire trucks and two command vehicles responded to the flames on 13th Street between Roselawn and M avenues in Brownwood, Preston said.

No injuries were reported.

The flames were limited to the garage, Preston said.

KTXS will provide additional details as they become available.
