Spokane firefighters kept a large garage fire in the 2500 block of North Sycamore Street from spreading to nearby homes just before 5 a.m. Sunday.
The first crews to arrive encountered large flames and heavy smoke at the home north of Spokane Community College, according to a news release. The blaze had already spread to two nearby cars and severed a live electrical wire.
The fire also caused multiple explosions from propane tanks and flammable liquids stored in the garage, according to a new release. But fire crews were able to stop the fire from spreading to any nearby structures.
No occupants of the home or firefighters were injured, according to a news release.
Spokane Fire Department investigators have not determined the cause of the fire.
