CENTRAL - One home was destroyed and another had minor damage after a chemical fire earlier this afternoon in Central.

Firefighters said the fire started in the garage of a home on North Oak Drive, and the wind carried it to the home next door, which is owned by a Central firefighter.

Investigators believe a small fire started in a closet or utility room attached to the garage, and was then fueled by something when a car was backed into the garage.

No one was injured in the fire.

News 2 will have reaction from the home's owner tonight on News 2 at 10.
