Several vehicles destroyed in Manchester garage fire

The cause of a fire that destroyed several vehicles in Ontario County remains under investigation.

Deputies say a little after 11:30 p.m. on January 15 first responders were called to a structure fire on Outlet Road in the town of Manchester.


Upon arrival, deputies found an unattached garage fully-engulfed with flames.

Multiple fire companies were called to the scene, including Manchester, Clifton Springs, and Port Gibson.

The fire was fully-extinguished, but multiple vehicles inside the garage were damaged. Some siding on a nearby house was also damaged.

All occupants of the residence were located and exited before anyone was hurt, according to deputies.

The cause of the fire appears to be heat lamps, but an investigation remains active.
