Fire destroyed a garage Tuesday afternoon in Maurice.  Shortly after 4pm, a report of a garage fire on residential property in the town of Maurice was received by the Sioux County Communications Center.

When the Maurice Fire Department arrived at the scene, they immediately requested Sioux Center Fire Department to provide mutual assistance.

During the investigation, officials discovered the residents of that address had been burning garbage earlier in the day, causing the fire to ignite in the garage area.

Fire personnel were able to extinguish the fire and no injuries were reported.  The occupants of the residence were warned for open burning during a burn ban.

The Maurice Fire Department was assisted by the Sioux Center Fire Department Sioux Center Ambulance and the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office.
