Firefighters extinguish early morning Benson garage fire

An early morning fire in Benson heavily damaged two garages and the vehicles inside them. Firefighters responded to a report of a detached garage fire just after midnight this morning with report of smoke, fire, and explosions.

Initial first responders reported heavy smoke and flames and requested additional resources to the scene. Live power lines and power transformers exploding also caused a hazard for firefighters battling the blaze.

OPPD cut power to the nearby power lines and the fire was brought under control in less than 20 minutes. Firefighters remained on scene for some time performing overhaul and checking a nearby church for any fire extension.



Death, destruction, and funny stuff from the streets of Omaha. I'm not making this up.
