Lake Havasu City Fire Marshal Chip Shilosky said Monday the origin of a fire that destroyed a duplex garage in the 3700 block of Hiawatha Drive Saturday afternoon was undetermined by fire investigators, but the fire isn’t believed to be suspicious in nature.

“It started in the garage area on a workbench,” Shilosky said.

The residence was unoccupied at the time of the fire, and a Lake Havasu City police officer reported the fire about 1:32 p.m. that day. The garage was destroyed and fire spread into the attic, damaging roof trusses and the ceiling in unit A. The duplex’s other unit, Unit B, lost power in the fire, but it wasn’t damaged.
