Garage fire struck out in same alley as Tyshawn Lee memorial

CHICAGO (WLS) -- There is a new memorial Sunday night for Tyshawn Lee, the 9-year old fatally shot nearly a week ago.

A garage fire broke out in the same alley where a memorial was located for Tyshawn, who police say was targeted and fatally shot last week.

Police say a lit candle accidentally sparked the blaze in a garage in the 2000-block of W. 80th Street around 1:59 a.m. Sunday morning. No injuries were reported.

The flames damaged a garage located in that Auburn-Gresham neighborhood.
