Garage Fires

Winona firefighters had to battle two fires during Saturday's heavy rains that occurred in the same general area.

Authorities said a fire was reported in a shed at 871 East 8th Street about 12:45 a.m.

A resident reported seeing the blaze also spread to a neighbor's shed and garage.

Prior to that, at 12:39 a.m. firefighters were called to a garage fire at 905 East Seventh Street. That fire was reported by a resident who said a loud snap and thunder was heard just before the fire was noticed. Police said a 2004 Highlander that was parked inside the garage was totally destroyed.

There were no reported injuries.....
