Crews battled a garage fire in Merrill on Friday, according to the Merrill Fire Department officials.
Fire officials say when crews arrived at 406 N. Scott Street just before noon a one story garage was on fire and billowing smoke. Officials spoke to the tenants of the apartment. They told investigators that there was no permanent power to the garage, only an extension cord that ran from the apartment and supplied power to the garage.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
