A detached garage fire early Thursday morning at 1310 State Route 430 in Madison Township is being investigated as possible arson.

Firefighters from Madison, Mifflin, and Monroe Townships were called at five am by a neighbor who discovered the fire.

Two engines and two tanker trucks responded. 

Firefighters arrived to find a small fire but heavy smoke and put it out in about fifteen minutes.

The flames extended into the attic, causing moderate damage.

A car inside the garage appeared to have sustained little if any damage.

The cause is not known but considered suspicious.

And, with recent break-ins reported in the area, the State Fire Marshal was called to determine whether it was deliberately set.

The resident was not home and firefighters were trying to contact him.
