TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Flames tore through a Topeka garage Monday night.

A charred frame was all that remained of the structure at 1212 Southwest 17th St. Topeka Fire crews got the call around 7:40 pm.

The garage was detached from the home on the property, so the home itself was not damaged, but the flames did destroy the garage itself and a car outside. Fire officials say the heat from the flames did some additional damage to a neighbor's carport and fence.

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire. They say the structure did not have electricity.
