HAWTHORNE ‒ At approximately 7:10 p.m., Monday, April 18, units from Alachua County, Melrose, and Windsor fire departments responded to a reported residential structure fire in the 2900 block of Southeast 301, north of Hawthorne. The first arriving unit found a detached garage fully involved with a fire that was threatening the house.
Water tankers also were utilized because there were no fire hydrants in the area. The first units on scene were able to contain the fire to the garage and kept it from spreading into the residence that was in close proximity, but not attached.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
