Fire, presumably started by a bunch of kids, destroyed a small frame garage at the rear of a residence on East Edison Avenue about 9 a.m. Wednesday. The flimsy structure went up like a powder keg and all that remained when the fire engine reached the spot was the lot.
A number of youngsters were playing in the garage just before it burst into flames and are given credit for starting the blaze.
