No residents were injured in the fire, the cause of which remains under investigation, fire officials said. The initial loss estimate to the structure and its contents is $60,000.
Firefighters called to the scene in the 700 block of Olive Street shortly before 10 p.m. arrived to find the detached two-car garage fully in flames.
There was no one in the garage and everyone who lived at the home was accounted for, officials said. The garage was a total loss, and there was minor damage to a neighbor’s home and garage siding.
The injured firefighter was treated at a hospital and later released.
