Grantsville, Arnoldsburg and Upper West Fork Volunteer Fire Departments responded to a fire on Wigner Street Wednesday evening that destroyed a garage and a two-story dwelling. The fire was quickly brought under control, but continued to be a problem for at least an hour. No injuries were reported.

Fifteen-year-old Ryan Bremar, whose own house was a few feet from the fire, approached the blazing structure and alerted the occupant Adam Roberts. Bremar became a First Class Scout a few weeks ago.

Wind whipped up the embers again about 1:15 a.m. Thursday, according to Asst. Fire Chief Dave Johnson of the GVFD. "We stayed on the scene for about 45 minutes," he said. "It was a long night for our firemen," he concluded.

Before the mop-up of the Grantsville fire was completed, firemen responded to a second call on Leading Creek (SEE Hur Herald story). Additional pictures of the Grantsville fire scene:
