Cause of Monday night vehicle and structure fire still under investigation

Deputy State Fire Marshall Ryan Sylvester says he continues to work in conjunction with Scottsbluff Police on the cause of a late Monday night fire that started from a fully engulfed vehicle parked in a garage at 710 East Overland.

According to Scottsbluff Police, officers responded just before midnight. The fire spread from the vehicle to adjacent vehicles and the building. Tenants of the apartments were evacuated by Scottsbluff Police as Scottsbluff Fire arrived and extinguished the fire.

11 tenants were assisted by the Scottsbluff Firefighter Ministry for temporary housing.

Sylvester says it will be a few days before the investigation is complete. Damage is estimated at $35,000.
