• Fire of undetermined origin leveled the garage at the Robert Brinias home to the ground late Tuesday afternoon. The building was completely engulfed in flames when the fire was discovered. Fortunately, neighbors were able to prevent it to spreading to the house until the fire department arrived and put it under control. The Brinias family was away at the time and the garage was empty except for a few toys and similar articles of small value.
