ATHENS, Wis. (WAOW) -

Fire crews battled a garage fire in Marathon County early Monday morning.
The Athens and Edgar fire department responded to a call around 1 a.m. off of hwy M in Athens.

Officials said when they arrived the garage was engulfed. The flames were about 14 to 15 ft high, destroying the garage.

Next to it was a trailer home which also caught on fire. However, firefighters said only the north end was damaged.

No one was hurt and no one was home during the time.

Athens fire captain Brian Lavicka said the location made it hard to get crews on site.

"We're so far off the main road," Lavicka said. "About 500 yards from the main road."
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
