The 8200 block of West Main Street in Belleville was shut down about 3:30 p.m. Saturday as firefighters battled a garage fire.

West Main Street in Belleville was temporarily shut down Saturday while firefighters battled a garage blaze.

No injuries were reported in the fire at 8200 W. Main St. and firefighters were able to contain the fire to the garage, which is attached to the home by a breezeway.

Fire Chief Tom Pour said firefighters received the call for help at 3:20 p.m. when a Belleville officer was in his car in a parking lot near the home and a passer-by waved his hands at him to alert him to the smoke coming from the garage.

Pour said an investigation showed the fire started inside the garage but the cause is currently listed as undetermined due to the fact that there are some electrical devices which the department has not been able to rule out yet.
