Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER - POST STAFF RE­PORT

A late-night garage fire caused dam­age in the Ar­bour Park neigh­bor­hood of Ne­wark last week.

Fire­fight­ers were called to the 600 block of Ar­bour Drive around 11:45 p.m. Nov. 20 and found flames com­ing from a garage at­tached to a two-story, sin­gle-fam­ily home, ac­cord­ing to an Aetna Hose, Hook and Lad­der Com­pany spokesman.

A smoke de­tec­tor alerted oc­cu­pants of the home, who were able to evac­u­ate be­fore fire­fight­ers ar­rived.

No one was in­jured, and fire­fight­ers from Aetna, Chris­tiana and Mill Creek fire com­pa­nies quickly brought the blaze un­der con­trol.

The state fire mar­shal is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause of the fire.
