Though his house was saved, the owner still suffered significant losses from a garage fire in Peru Saturday. Peru Assistant Fire Chief, Jim Duncan says a fishing boat inside and a car outside were destroyed with the garage. Duncan said the structure was fully engulfed when firemen arrived around 3:30pm. Duncan said there were no problems in battling the fire and it’s not considered suspicious. Firemen returned shortly after 6pm. LaSalle firemen manned the Peru department for mutual aid.  Structural damage is estimated at 15 thousand dollars and thirty thousand for the car and boat.
