The fire was extinguished in a matter of minutes. No injuries were reported.

Wax said the homeowner reported being in the garage earlier in the morning, then went into the house for a while, and later came back outside to find heavy smoke coming from the garage.

Fire investigators are working to determine the cause and origin of the blaze. No cars were in the garage. A cost estimate on total fire damage wasn't immediately available.
