Fire Destroys Self-Storage Warehouse in Garland, Texas


A two-alarm blaze ripped through a self-storage warehouse in Garland, Texas, early Tuesday morning, destroying Reynold Warehouses and everything stored in it.

The fire happened at an old cotton mill that was converted into self-storage. Stored items included boats. Fire crews were able to get the fire under control, but the building and all stored goods were destroyed.

Officials report there was no sprinkler system, and the storage area was drafty, which enabled the flames to spread rapidly. No one was injured.
