A fire that started in a detached garage early Wednesday morning quickly spread, causing tens of thousands of dollars in damages.

It all started in the garage on Robey Avenue shortly after midnight. When firefighters arrived, the structure was fully engulfed in flames. Those flames spread to a neighboring duplex, causing $50,000 to the residence’s kitchen and attic.

Another neighboring house also sustained damage due to the heat.

No one was hurt in the blaze. It caused a grand total of $69,000 of damage to all of the structures.

The cause is under investigation.
