Cal Fire/Ramona crews battled a nasty garage fire on Old Julian Highway that sent the odor of smoke wafting through eastern Ramona Sunday evening.
The fire in a two-car attached garage in front of a duplex at 283 W. Old Julian Highway erupted around 6:20 p.m., according to Cal Fire Capt. Kendal Bortisser. Forty minutes later, crews gained the upper hand on the blaze, knocking down the flames with no injuries, he said.
The garage was about 90 percent destroyed, but no one was hurt and no residents were displaced, the fire captain said, noting the cause was under investigation.
