MOORESBURG – Volunteer fire crews from three counties battled a large garage fire early Saturday morning in Liberty Township, Montour County. East Central 9-1-1 says the call came in around 1:45am for the ‘working garage fire.’

The location was in the 500 block of Liberty Valley Road (Route 642) behind The Venue event space near Danville. The first arriving fire chief said he immediately called two more alarms to bring more apparatus and volunteers.

Responding were fire departments from Danville, East End, Southside, Elysburg, Pottsgrove, Turbot Township, Liberty Township, Washingtonville and Valley Township. Some were on the scene until about 5:30 this morning.

The structure was destroyed, the cause of the fire isn’t known, but investigators speculate it may have started after a lightning strike. The garage was used to build wooden cabinets.
