Fish cooker starts Brownwood fire,...

BROWNWOOD, Texas - A Brownwood garage was heavily damaged by fire Tuesday after a fish cooker – placed between a house and the garage – hadn’t been turned off.

Fire Marshal Buddy Preston said a man made it out of the home safely after he had forgotten to turn the cooker off “before going to bed – and it lit the garage on fire.”


Four fire trucks and two command vehicles responded to the flames on 13th Street between Roselawn and M avenues in Brownwood, Preston said.

No injuries were reported.

The flames were limited to the garage, Preston said.

KTXS will provide additional details as they become available.
