Fifteen firefighters from Highlands East responded to a structure fire on Koshlong Lake on Thursday, Sept. 17 just after 5 p.m.
Once at the scene, the firefighters found a three-bay garage ablaze, said Chris Baughman, fire chief for Highlands East. They were on scene until about 10 p.m., assisted by the Dysart Fire Department.
The property is on Tadpole Lane, at the north end of the lake.
Mike Palmer of the Koshlong Lake Association saw the fire and told the Echo that the lake association was thankful to the fire departments for attending and “preventing the fire from spreading and starting a forest fire.”
No injuries were reported and no one was in the garage at the time of the fire. The cause has not yet been determined.
