"I almost had it out, but I played out myself" said 83-year-old George
Darrell Villers of
Annamoriah Creek. The Villers garage beside his residence caught on
fire about 1 p.m. today.
"It started between the studs," he said. The Grantsville Volunteer
Fire Department responded
with four units to the Joker-Hur Road about two miles from State Route
The building, containing tools and equipment, was a total loss. Other
out buildings also burned,
but the house was spared by the action of the fire department.
Villers and his wife went to the Ward and Virginia Swart residence to
watch the fire and recover
from the billows of smoke which filled the narrow hollow.
Grantsville firemen called for a second tanker truck.
Villers, while out of breath, decided he did not need further medical
treatment. He was checked
by Calhoun EMS personnel.
No estimate of damage was available.
