Home Depot Fire
The Billings Gazette reports that a fire broke out at Home Depot Sunday night, causing an estimated $50,000 in damages to the store’s outdoor garden center, according to Billings Fire Department officials. The fire was reported at 11:36 p.m., according to a press release issued by Deputy Fire Marshal Jeff McCullough this morning. It was confined to a three-level rack containing some outdoor products.
No one was injured in the fire, which apparently started after the store closed on Sunday. The store’s sprinkler system activated and helped confine the fire, which took firefighters about 15 minutes to fully extinguish. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
