Firefighters work on a garage fire on College Avenue near campus Oct. 31.

A garage at a Norman residence just north of campus on College Avenue caught fire this morning.

Smoke could be seen from parts of campus, and a section of the road was blocked off by police cars as lights from more than five fire trucks flashed red.

Norman Fire Department Fire Inspector David Randolph said the department received a call this morning about a structural fire. He told The Daily at 12:13 p.m. that the fire was under control, but said the cause of the fire had not yet been determined.

Scott Kirker is a letters and Spanish senior and assistant news managing editor for The Daily. Previously he worked as summer editor-in-chief and as a news reporter covering research and administrative searches.
