LaCROFT-A fire Sunday afternoon caused an estimated $5,000 in damage to a LaCroft area man's garage.
LaCroft, Dixonville, Glenmoor and Calcutta Fire departments were called to the home of David Warrick at 427 5th Avenue in LaCroft for a structure fire at about 4:00 p.m.
Firefighters were able to bring the blaze under control relatively fast, and the garage itself did not sustain heavy damage, according to Glenmoor Assistant Fire Chief Cliff Utt.
Utt says a lawn tractor in the garage is believed to be the source of the fire, however, why it caught fire in the first place is still under investigation.
He noted that most of the damage done in the fire was done to the lawn tractor.
According to Utt, Warrick was home at the time the fire started, but neither he nor any firefighters who fought the fire were injured.
It is not known whether or not the garage is insured.
