Garage, home damaged in early morning Lakeville fire

Fire officials say one person has been treated for smoke inhalation following an early morning fire in Lakeville on Tuesday.

According to Lakeville Fire Chief Michael Meyer, crews were called to the home located on Glenbrook Path, just off Cedar Avenue and Lakeville Road, for a report of a fire. When firefighters arrived, they found the three people inside the home had already safely evacuated thanks to a neighbor, who is also a member of the Lakeville Fire Department.

Responding crews also found heavy fire in the garage, where they were able to contain the flames. However, the home’s interior was also damaged by smoke.

Currently, the cause is still being investigated.

Family members and neighbors are helping the home’s residents.
