Scituate: Authorities Investigating Town Highway Dept. Garage Fire

Scituate crews were kept busy for about an hour putting out a fire at a town highway department garage on Captain Pierce Rd.

Fire captain William Sestito tells WATD that someone called in a report of a brush fire, but when the fire department arrived on scene around 1:45 p.m. Saturday, they found it was just the garage that was in flames.

It was started by a truck that caught fire inside the garage.

The garage has some structural damage, and the truck that caught fire was totaled.

Another truck was damaged, and other equipment sustained heat and smoke damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

No one was hurt.
