PIQUA — A late night fire Saturday caused a total loss to the detached garage of the Aiken Road home.

Lockington Fire Chief Jon Adams said the fire at 881 Aiken Road, Piqua, was caused from a heating lamp in the dog house area located along the side of the garage/workshop. He said the homeowner made the call after seeing the fire that then spread to the garage.

According to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, they received the report of a structure fire on Saturday, March 2, at 11:54 p.m. Along with Lockington, Russia and Houston Fire Departments, Houston Rescue and Deputies responded.

Adams said Pioneer Electric also was called to the scene to reconnect electricity to the family’s home, which was out for a short time. The home was not affected by the fire otherwise.

“(The garage) is a total loss. The structure is still standing, but the tresses are completely burned,” Adams said.

The homeowner was able to get the dogs, including a litter of puppies, to safety.

No one, including first responders, was injured in the fire.

The total loss amount of the structure and contents is estimated at $50,000 to $60,000.
