Fire destroys garage, two cars near Fulton

A residential garage was destroyed along with two cars inside in a fire at a home near Fulton Tuesday night, according to a Sonoma County Fire District official.

The Laughlin Road blaze inside the detached 1,000-square-foot garage was reported at 10:42 p.m., according to Redcom. It was one of several structure fires that the department responded to that day.

A resident on the property was alerted to the blaze after hearing commotion in the yard, Cyndi Foreman, division chief and fire marshal, said in a text message.

Three other vehicles on the property were damaged or took radiant heat.

An estimate on damage was not available Wednesday, Foreman said.

The cause of the blaze was still unknown.

Education, The Press Democrat

Learning is a transformative experience. Beyond that, it’s a right, under the law, for every child in this country. But we also look to local schools to do much more than teach children; they are tasked with feeding them, socializing them and offering skills in leadership and civics. My job is to help you make sense of K-12 education in Sonoma County and beyond.
