The abandoned garage was fully involved when firefighters arrived at the property, Radtke said. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, he added.

A nearby home suffered some damage due to the heat from the fire, he said.

Neighbors, who asked not to be identified, said the home on the shores of Echo Lake was torn down earlier this year, but the two-story garage remained unoccupied.

The fire was so large that flames reached the tops of nearby trees, the neighbors said.

Radtke said about a dozen area departments were called in to assist.
