Upon arrival they found an unattached garage on fire with exposures to other structures on the side.  Quick action by the crew of Engine 16 quickly knocked down the flames without seeing an damage to any of the other structures or homes.

A fire investigator was called to the scene and has still not determined the cause.

Firefighters at the scene estimated damage to the structure at $40,000 and the contents at $15,000.
