OAKHURST — Firefighters kept a structure fire just off Road 222 from spreading into the surrounding homes and vegetation this morning.
Just after 5:30 a.m., crews were called out to the 51000 block of Dorstan Drive where the first engine at scene reported a single story structure fully involved.
The building appeared to have been a garage or shed, with one car inside. The structure burned to the ground, but crews kept the fire from spreading to the home on the property, with minimal damage to surrounding vegetation.
No one was reportedly in the home or on the property at the time of the fire, the cause of which is under investigation.
Cal Fire Engines 4254, 4260, 4264, 4285 and 4294 responded, along with Madera County Fire Engines 12 and 18, and Water Tenders 14 and 18.
The Incident Commander reported the fire contained to the structure at 6:08 a.m., and all resources not already at scene were called off.
