PORTAGE (WKZO) -- Portage fire investigators will be looking for the source of a fire that damaged a garage attached to the house at 6412 Sussex just before 6 Saturday evening.
The tenant stated that he had been painting doors in the garage earlier in the day and then left for work.
His wife smelled smoke and saw a small fire in the corner of the garage. She shut the door, evacuated the home and called 9-1-1.
The fire was quickly extinguished by the first fire crew on the scene.
