CEDAR LAKE | A motel garage fire Sunday resulted in $30,000 damage to the structure and an office, Cedar Lake Fire Chief Todd Wilkening said.
The garage was attached to the business office at Crestview Motel.
The fire was mostly contained to the garage with some damage to the office, Wilkening said.
