Following reports of smoldering at the site of an early morning fire, the Hawarden Fire Department returned to the scene as a precaution this afternoon around 3pm.  Initially, Hawarden Fire and Rescue were called early this (Thursday) morning to a report of a garage fire.  When they arrived, Hawarden Fire found the garage roof had already collapsed and fire had spread to the primary residence at which time other resources were called to help. 

The garage in which the fire allegedly started, was burned to the ground, but fire personnel stopped the flames from spreading.

The extent of the damage to the house is unknown at this time, it is also unknown whether this afternoon’s call was for the house or the remains of the garage.  Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
