JHoward ave fireust before midnight a Bridgeport Police Officer on routine patrol discovered this garage on fire at the corner of Beechwood Avenue and Howard Avenue.  They soon reported the exact location as 1159 Howard Avenue.  As firefighters were on the way they also let the firefighters know that there was another garage right behind it that was of brick construction and wood roof on fire yet but firefighters did not let that happen.  Firefighters quickly went to work and prevented a complete loss of this two bay garage. Special thanks to Chris Clarke from firstduephotography.smugmug.com for this photo.  Check out the great work they do covering the city!  Of course a great job to the Bridgeport Fire Department for keeping this fire minor!
