Garage damaged in southern Sioux Falls after lawn mower fire
A few streets in southwestern Sioux Falls were shut down after a small fire in a residential garage.
Crews were called to the home on W. Old Yankton Road just before 9 Thursday evening. Firefighters found a small fire in the driveway, in front of the home’s garage. There was also a small fire inside the garage, where some gas was spilled.
It took around 10 minutes for crews to put the fire out. There was minor fire and smoke damage to the garage.
Crews found the fire started with the resident overfilled the gas tank on a lawn mower. Area streets were closed for around an hour, while firefighters worked.
