Stanley Fire Chief Terry A. Pettit stated that the Stanley Fire Department responded to a garage fire recently. The garage was located on Honeyville Road about two miles southwest of Stanley. Chief Pettit reported the first engine arrived within six minutes but the fire was already spreading throughout the two-story garage. Firefighters also had to contend with keeping a nearby LP gas tank cool as well as keeping the fire from spreading to the house. The fire took about 30 minutes to bring under control and the garage was considered a total loss. An SUV and a pickup were also destroyed.
