WINSTED — A garage in Winsted on Lake Street was damaged in a fire on Wednesday, Jan. 3.

Winsted Fire Department Chief David Sartirana said that no one was hurt in the fire, which started at around noon.

The town’s assessor database said the building is owned by Henry Schieb and was originally built in 1900. Schieb uses it as a vehicle repair facility, Sartirana said, noting that, “There is a lot of stuff in the building, a lot of vehicle parts, and it was hard to get in there once the fire was going.”
