Rochester fire crews plan to demolish a garage on the city’s northwest side after an early-morning fire.

Fire officials were called to the scene of a garage fire on Otis Street near Lyell Avenue around 4:30 a.m. Monday. Officials say the entire garage was on fire when they arrived, and a shed behind the garage sustained minor fire damage. We’re told RG&E crews were on the scene to evaluate power lines near and above the garage. The garage is a total loss, and crews plan to tear it down later Monday morning.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
