The Lostant Fire Department responded to a garage fire on the morning of Jan. 30, when temperatures were well below zero. Firefighters found the detached garage located in the 300 block of West Third Street fully involved and with heavy smoke and flames showing. The garage and a vehicle were severely damaged, but firefighters were able to save the home, which was less than five feet from the garage, and the strong winds also helped. Lostant was assisted by the Toluca, Wenona, Tonica and Leonore fire departments, and also Eastern Marshall County Ambulance and Hope Township. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
