Wind complicates West Des Moines garage firefight

(West Des Moines, Iowa)  Fire destroyed a detached garage near a busy street  in West Des Moines this (Monday) afternoon.  Crews were called to 5525 Ashworth Road at 12:30 p.m.   

Crews arrived and found the garage on fire, and the homeowner, trying to help tackle it, as best he could with a garden hose.

Crews put out the fire quickly, but stayed around to watch for hot- spots, because of very strong winds.

Traffic in the 55-hundred block of Ashworth was blocked over the noon hour, while crews handled the fire.
