A smoldering scene remained Monday morning several hours after fire destroyed what neighbors describe as an old bus garage and damaged several neighboring houses. Channel 11 observed that at least 5 homes sustained damage.

Firefighters from a dozen departments stayed on scene for hours, fighting to put out the flames as smoke billowed out around them. Officials at the scene said one person was taken to the hospital.

The garage is a total loss. We don’t know the extent of damage to the other buildings.
