By , Columbian Web Editor

Two vehicles caught fire in a garage blaze that damaged an east Vancouver home on Monday morning.

The fire was in a home built in 2019 in the 15400 block of 15th Street. It was reported about 8:30 a.m., according to the Vancouver Fire Department. 

When fire crews arrived at the single-story home in the Country-Side Woods neighborhood, they saw smoke and flames coming from the garage.

Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire, which included two vehicles.

The occupants of the home evacuated and no injuries were reported.

A total of 16 firefighters responded, along with two battalion chiefs, according to the fire department. Firefighters were on the scene for about an hour and a half.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office.
