Clarendon man feels lucky to escape garage fire
CLARENDON – Joe Blair leaned on a pickup truck and watched a life’s collection of tools and a restored 1938 Chevy owned by his father go up in flames.
“At least it’s not a life,” Blair said at about 1 p.m. today while firefighters brought a garage fire under control.
Blair was welding in his garage, behind his mother Rose Blair’s home at 4244 Fancher Rd. The car he was working on quickly was engulfed in flames. Blair was surprised how fast the fire spread.
“I’m lucky I got out,” he said. “It went up so quick.”
