On February 23rd, Deputies assisted the Dexter Fire Department with a house fire in the 9600 block of Daisy Lane. The caller, a nearby neighbor, indicated they observed flames coming from the garage. Deputies arrived to find the garage engulfed in flames. Deputies contacted the neighbor and confirmed that the residents were away and only pets remained in the household. The fire was extinguished, and Deputies were able to locate the homeowner. The homeowner advised Deputies and Fire personnel that they had been utilizing a wood-burning stove due to a power loss. The ashes had been placed into a paper bag next to the garage, which was the likely cause of the blaze.
