Firefighters extinguish late-night blaze that spreads from vehicle to garage

No injuries reported

Fire officials are investigating the cause of a late night fire that started as a vehicle fire and spread to the garage at 2006 Via Rancho Dos Ninas off Dye Road.

No injuries were reported and all of the animals were found safe, reported Cal Fire Capt. Robert Ramirez with the Ramona Fire Department.

Cal Fire/Ramona firefighters responded to the report of a residential structure fire at 10:28 p.m. Saturday. On arrival, they found a vehicle on fire in front of the home. The garage attached to the home was about three-quarters on fire, reported Ramirez.

Crews concentrated on extinguishing the garage fire to prevent spread into the main part of the house, said Ramirez.

Occupants of the home had evacuated the house before firefighters arrived but reported they had not found all of their four dogs and eight cats. Firefighters searching for the possible extension of fire into the main house located some of the missing pets in the smoke filled home. All pets were found alive and reunited with their owners, according to the report.

Firefighters remained at the scene until 1:30 a.m. Sunday working on salvage and overhaul, noted Ramirez.

The origin of the fire was the vehicle parked in front of the house, but the cause is as yet unknown. Damage estimate was approximately $70,000.
