UPDATE @ 4:45 p.m. (March 25)

A Huber Heights family was displaced Friday night after a fire broke out in the garage.

Firefighters said there were no fire hydrants in the neighborhood, so they had to bring in water on tanker trucks to put it out.

A homeowner said the fire was caused by a heat lamp that was somehow knocked over.

UPDATE @ 11:50 p.m.

A Huber Heights family had to evacuate their single-story house tonight after a fire broke out in their garage.

The fire was reported sometime after 11 p.m. in the 4000 block of Betal Court. It started in the garage, where it was contained.

An investigator was called to the scene to help determine its cause.

No injuries were reported, and a damage estimate was not available.

FIRST REPORT

Crews are responding to a report of an engulfed house in Huber Heights.

The fire was reported shortly after 11 p.m. in the 8000 block of Betal Court.

That neighborhood is not believed to have fire hydrants, so Huber Heights emergency dispatchers requested additional tanker trucks from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and Bethel Twp. in Miami County to provide extra water.
