Piqua firefighters were dispatched to a reported structure fire at 819 Garbry Road, behind the Miami Valley Centre Mall, just after 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday. The first fire units on the scene, minutes later, reported a “fully involved structure fire” at the single-story wood frame home and immediately went into a defensive firefighting mode. The fire was brought under control in under an hour. No injuries were reported. Fire officials are still investigating a cause and damage estimate.
