Omaha Garage Fire Cause Determined

Omaha Fire Investigators say a fire near 49th and K Streets is an accident.

It was in a detached garage in the four o'clock hour Tuesday afternoon.

When they pulled up to the scene, firefighters found heavy black smoke coming from behind a residence.

Firefighters found that a fire on a fence had spread to a building and items stored between the garage and the fence.

They quickly brought the fire under control.

Investigators say there was an electric arc event at a power pole that caused the fire, and no injuries were reported.
