A fire that started in an attached garage spread to the one-story William and Carolyn Schindler home in Monroe on Wednesday evening, destroying both structures.
Neither of the occupants was injured, but all their belongings were lost, including two vehicles parked in the garage.
Monroe Fire Chief Russell Cook said this morning that the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
He also said the steady east wind created minor shingle damage to a neighboring home's roof.
Property taxes will be on time this year, Adams County Treasurer Rex Moore announced this week.
