Harlem-Roscoe and North Park Firefighters worked together to extinguish a garage on fire on Hwy 251, at the residence that splits the two fire districts, on Aug. 23. It seems fire from a burn pit spread to the garage, climbing the outside wall and entering the attic of the garage. The fire was knocked down quickly and most of the contents of the garage were saved.
