CUSTER, S.D. (KEVN) - Custer firefighters battled a late night garage fire Sunday, keeping it from seriously damaging a nearby home on the 12000 block of Moss rock Lane in Rural Custer.

According to a release, the fire had already engulfed the detached garage and was threatening nearby structures when firefighters arrived. That prompted them to strike a second alarm, getting help from Hill City and Battle Creek firefighters.

The fire did spread to the adjacent home before crews were able to get it under control. That home has light to moderate damage. However, no one was injured.
