EAST LACKAWANNOCK TOWNSHIP – A fire on Monday destroyed a garage, a boat and other stored items at 521 Mercer New Wilmington Road, said East End Fire Chief Bill Finley Jr.

A motorcycle was removed and likely can be salvaged, said firefighters, who were called at 7:45 a.m.

The one-bay garage was about 4 feet from a home, which sustained some burned siding, but no interior damage, Finley said.

The fire started in a wall of the garage but the cause has not been determined, Finley said. Owner Wes Williams’ insurance company will decide whether any further investigation is done, firefighters said.

Springfield Township firefighters assisted Mercer volunteers.
