A fast moving fire destroyed a home Friday on Strauss Road in the Town of Lockport.

Flames broke out around 11 a.m. inside the garage of a home on Strauss Road off South Transit Road. Within minutes, the fire had spread to the attached house and a fence surrounding the home. A truck parked in the driveway was also destroyed.

No one was hurt. Investigators are working to find out what sparked the fire, although they believe chemicals stored in the garage fueled the flames.

About a half dozen companies responded to the scene, including the City of Lockport, South Lockport, Rapids, and Wendelville responded.
