BRANDON — A fire heavily damaged a detached garage at 149 North Street in Brandon at approximately 4:15 a.m. on Aug. 8. The house and garage is owned by Brandon resident Kelly Disorda. The Brandon Fire Department responded to the scene, but by the time they arrived they found the detached garage fully involved with fire.
Firefighters from Brandon and Pittsford were able to suppress the fire quickly, which prevented further fire spread and limited property damage. As part of Chief Thomas Kilpeck’s assessment of the fire scene he contacted the Department of Public Safety Fire and Explosion Investigation Unit (FEIU) for assistance in determining the origin and cause. That team determined the fire to be inside the garage in the general area of the overhead door. They reported that the cause of the fire remains undetermined, but is not considered to be the result of direct human involvement.
There were no injuries resulting from the fire. Property damage was estimated to be in excess of $75, 000 as the family lost several all-terrain vehicles that were stored inside the garage.
