BELLVILLE, OH-Fire destroyed a detached garage at 9 Mill Road in Bellville Tuesday morning.

The blaze broke out shortly after eight o'clock, sending 25 to 30 firefighters from the Jefferson Township, Troy Township, Washington Township, and Fredericktown Fire Departments to the scene.

The fire sent thick gray smoke billowing into the air and took twenty minutes to contain plus another couple of hours to douse hot-spots.

But the flames only slightly affected the house, possibly scorching some shingles.

No firefighters or residents were hurt as a result of the fire. 

The cause is undetermined and being investigated.
