NORTON SHORES — A home in the 1300 block of Wilson Road in Norton Shores was damaged by fire Wednesday evening. 

The fire started in the home’s garage, according to Lt. Casey Rosenberg of the Norton Shores Fire Department. When firefighters arrived shortly before 8 p.m., the flames had spread considerably. 

“People were not home at the time of the fire,” Rosenberg said. “Passers-by called it in. We arrived and the garage was fully involved, and the fire had spread to the house. There’s a lot of smoke and water damage to the house, and the attached garage was a total loss.”

No one was home at the time of the fire, Rosenberg said. A family pet died in the flames. 

The Fruitport Fire Department assisted on the call.
