BRECKENRIDGE - A blaze that started in a garage here destroyed the attached home and injured one of its owners Thursday, Breckenridge Fire Chief Paul Sorum said.


Firefighters were called to a pickup fire just after 6 p.m. at the home of William and Barbara Baumgartner at 722 10th St. N.

When they arrived, the garage was on fire, and William Baumgartner was just getting out of the burning pickup, which he'd moved into the driveway, Sorum said.
