402 Oaklawn Ave Waterloo Garage Fire

The fire destroyed an unattached garage and contents (I could see what was left of a boat and trailer) It also spread to the garage next to it. A car that was sitting approx. 20 feet from the fire had the lens covers melted on the driver's side. The driver's window was also broken. (This was done when I got there but there was glass on the ground) A garage on the passenger's side of the car had the paint melted. The fire also caught the electrical lines on fire and they arced and snapped. The electrical lines can be seen hanging at the top of the frame.
