North-end garage fire ignites vacant house

What started as a garage fire destroyed a vacant house yesterday near Stickney Avenue and East Manhattan Boulevard in North Toledo, authorities said.

Thick smoke billowing from the 1 -story wood frame house and an unattached garage at 3452 Harold Ct. could be seen from miles away.

The fire was reported about 11:35 a.m. Fire crews had the blaze under control 10 minutes later, by which time the two structures were a total loss, said Battalion Chief Gary Martin, who estimated the damage at $15,000.
