LAFAYETTE -- A one-alarm fire on Friday night gutted the garage of a home and displaced its residents, authorities said.
No injuries were reported, said Battalion Chief Keith Cormier, of the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.
Eighteen firefighters responded to reports of a blaze in the intersection of Victoria Avenue and Moraga Boulevard around 7:15 p.m., Cormier said.
They used four engines and a truck, along with assistance from the Moraga-Orinda Fire District, to contain the blaze within 20 minutes, fire officials said.
The garage, where firefighters believe the fire started, was destroyed. The rest of the home sustained major smoke damage, leaving it uninhabitable, authorities said.
Some of the residents were home when the fire started but they made it outside without harm, Cormier said.
The American Red Cross offered to help residents find temporary housing but they are going to stay with family and friends, authorities said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, fire officials said.
