A garage fire in Newton Township is being called suspicious, according to Lieutenant Mike Lecocq of the Muskingum County Sheriffs Office.

Lecocq said the fire at 7915 Old Town Rd. happened shortly after 9:30 Sunday evening. He said two separate calls came in- one in regards to the garage fire and another in regards to a truck fire, he said it wasn’t until crews arrived they realized the incidents were one in the same.

He said it’s still early in the investigation but at this time it’s being considered suspicious.
