NEW BRITAIN - A garage fire Sunday left a property owner with damaged tools and lawn equipment.

Firefighters responded to the fire at 190 Landers Ave. around 10:55 a.m.

It took about 15 minutes for firefighters to extinguish the flames in a detached garage, said Deputy Fire Chief William McCrann.

The fire is under investigation, but it did not appear to be suspicious, McCrann said.

There were no cars in the garage, which was heavily damaged. Several tools and lawn mowers were destroyed, McCrann said.

No one was injured in the fire, he added.
