Firefighters with the Ruston Fire Department work to put out a garage fire on Ridgemont Street Tuesday.

A garage on Ridgemont Street in Ruston was destroyed during the storm Tuesday evening after it caught fire and burned down.

Ruston Fire Department Public Education Officer Eric Brazzel said at approximately 8:45 p.m., the department received a call from neighbors passing by the flaming garage that sat detached from the main house. The neighbors also reportedly alerted the residents inside of the home of the fire, giving them enough time to move vehicles before the garage collapsed. Brazzel said the RFD responded, and the flames were put out within 30 minutes of their arrival.
