SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — Shawnee and American Township fire departments were called at 10:36 a.m., Sunday to 1250 Wonderlick Road for what was originally called in as a mower fire.
When crews arrived, they found a detached garage was also on fire.
It’s believed the mower got too close to a plastic gas can and melted it enough for the gasoline to catch the mower and garage on fire.
Damage to the garage and mower was listed at $40,000. No one was hurt. The garage is owned by Oscar Marshall.
