Jamestown  (CSi)  The Jamestown City Fire Department was called to a garage fire about 2:30-p.m., Saturday in the alley behind 1115 6th Avenue Southeast.


The two stall garage was fully in involved  in flames, shooting several feet into the air when the units arrived on the scene, causing a large amount of smoke to billow .

On-lookers were kept a safe distance away by police, as the garage contained small ammunitions which could be heard popping at the height of the fire.

A boat also sustained damage by the fire.

An adjacent garage in the alley to the south had its siding burned and melted,  but there appeared to be no structural damage.  No other structures were involved.

A power line was burned by the flames, and Otter Tail Power was called to the scene to attend the down wire and restore power to the area.

The city fire units were on the scene just under an hour.

Deputy Chief Howard Larson says  the fire appears to have started accidentally.

No firefighter injuries  were injured.
