$100,000 in damage caused by fire

A fire yesterday in the garage of a Wilde Lake village family that caused about $100,000 in damage probably was caused by improperly discarded ashes, the State Fire Marshal said.

No one was hurt in the incident.

Jesse Ingram, who lives in the 5100 block of Flowertuft Court, discovered the fire about 10: 01 a.m. when he heard a crackling noise coming from his two-car garage, the Fire Marshal said.

The blaze probably was started by ashes from a wood-burning stove placed in the garage, the Fire Marshal said.
