SHELTON — Firefighters quickly doused a garage fire Saturday, saving the main portion of the home at Capital Drive.

Deputy Fire Chief Paul Wilson said fire crews responded to a structure fire on Capital Drive about 1:20 p.m. The first units on the scene observed “an active fire in the garage,” Wilson said.

“Under command of Assistant Chief Mike Plavcan, members of Engine 32 utilized an 1 3/4-inch hose line to extinguish the fire,” Wilson said, adding that the blaze was doused within 10 minutes and crews proceeded to check for hot spots.
