EL CAJON (CNS) - A fire caused about $35,000 in damage to a detached garage at an El Cajon home, but no one was injured, fire officials said.

Fire crews dispatched about 7:30 a.m. Sunday to 391 W. Renette Ave. spotted thick black smoke coming from the garage, according to Heartland Fire & Rescue spokeswoman Monica Zech.

Firefighters kept the blaze from spreading to the home and declared it controlled in about 15 minutes, Zech said. The garage, however, was destroyed, she said.

How the fire started was not immediately known.
