Members of the Aledo Fire Department answered a call of a garage fire Wednesday afternoon and found the garage fully engulfed in flame.

The house was owned by Ron Moffitt and rented to Carrie Mitchell who lives there. Mitchell was cooking something in the garage when the fire started. Also ruined was a Dodge Durango parked in front of the garage.

No one was hurt in the fire.

About 20 firemen responded to the call that came in about 3 p.m. Wednesday. Firemen had the fire put out in about 30 minutes and were on scene for an hour.
