Video: Garage, vehicles damaged by fire

On Monday afternoon, two classic vehicles were destroyed in a garage fire on Guthrie’s west side.

Fire Chief Eric Harlow was traveling along State Highway 33 (Noble Ave.) when he noticed smoke coming from the area of 13th Street. He immediately dispatched his station for a working fire.

His fire crews were on the scene in four minutes at 3:34 p.m. and arrived at a fully involved fire.

With the assistance of the Oak Cliff Fire Department, the fire was knocked down quickly, but the damage had been done.

Inside the home’s exterior building were a classic Bentley and Mustang. Many shared that the Bentley was perhaps the finest vehicle in the Guthrie area.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown, but fire officials said two men were working on the Bentley with a space heater nearby.

One person was taken to the hospital with burns and smoke inhalation.

There was minor damage to the home as electricity and natural gas was forced to be cut off to the structure.

The highway was blocked off to traffic due to firefighters needing the use of a fire hydrant.

Fire crews attempted to use the hydrant at 13th Street and Cleveland but found the hydrant frozen and unable for used.

Fire crews left the residence at 5:39 p.m.
