WALKER, Mich. — Three people are left with a damaged home after a fire on Thanksgiving morning.

The Walker Fire Department responded to the house fire on Grand Bluff Court around 10:00am Thursday. 

There were reportedly three people inside the home at the time of the fire.  They were all able to get out safely.

A Walker Fire Chief tells FOX 17 the fire started somewhere in the garage.  The family reported to them that they had a smoker cooker running just outside, with the unit plugged in inside the garage.  The fire also damaged portions of the home’s attic.

The family says they heard a “pop” noise just before they saw flames and smoke.

The fire department says the garage and four vehicles that were inside it are a total loss.
