Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a fire that destroyed a garage and travel trailer at a Cedar Falls campground on Sunday (December 28, 2014).
According to Cedar Falls fire officials, a park ranger living in a house at Big Woods Lake Campground discovered the blaze around 7:30 p.m. and called firefighters to the scene.
The fire destroyed the garage and a 24-foot camper parked nearby. The house also sustained some heat damage, but no injured were reported.
