Firefighters could see smoke and flames pouring out of an east Topeka garage Wednesday morning as they arrived to put down the blaze.

According to the Topeka Fire Dept., the homeowner called firefighters around 11:30 a.m. to his house, 320 SE Golden Ave., after spotting the detached garage was on fire.

Fire crews attacked the blaze and were able to get it under control before the fire spread to the home.

No one was in the one-story structure at the time and no injuries were reported. A preliminary investigation was not able to determine a possible cause and the incident remains under investigation.

They estimated the fire did about $10,000 in damage to the garage and another $5,000 to its contents.

Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call Crimestoppers at (785) 234-0007 or Toll Free at 1-800-222 TIPS (8477).
