Fire burns down garage outside Yakima home

YAKIMA, Wash -- Fire reduced a garage to rubble outside this Yakima home.

Crews responded to a structure fire at 820 North 3rd Street in Yakima. The fire tore through the garage and incinerated a car. No one was hurt in the blaze. Fire officials do not think arson was involved.

Shift Commander Mitch Cole said high winds made the fire more difficult to fight.

"I think typically we would have had more of a stop on this fire if the winds had not been blowing as strong as they were. We would have been able to at least save part of the building and part of the car as well."

Firefighters used a protection line to spare the home from damage.
