Fire Breaks Out in Temecula House Garage

The blaze in the 42000 block of Via Renate was reported at 1:19 p.m., Cal Fire officials said.

A fire broke out Saturday in the garage of a Temecula home -- causing an estimated $80,000 damage -- but no injuries were reported and the home was left intact, Cal Fire officials said.

The blaze in the 42000 block of Via Renate was reported at 1:19 p.m., Cal Fire officials said.

Arriving firefighters spotted heavy smoke coming from the garage of a single-story, single-family home, according to Cal Fire's Melody Hendrickson.

Black smoke could be seen at least one mile away, as fire trucks could be heard racing to the scene.

Some 20 firefighters made quick work of the blaze -- containing it at 1:40 p.m. -- but not before the building and a vehicle inside were destroyed, Hendrickson said.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.

20 minutes called in, got there, put it out, good time guys. And to prevent it from going into the house is the best as that is when it really gets expensive! Thank god no one was injured and do we know how it started yet? So damn hot today, but more muggy then the temp high. Sometimes garages can be such a mess of cords from charging this and that, and that and this. Was noticing the other day my grandson has several cars/toys charging out there. Then add a few power tools and alot is going on.

Ok, you're right. Yesterday it was in Temecula. This afternoon, it was in Murrieta.. A fire broke out at Warm Springs Preserve in Murrieta Sunday, spreading quickly and forcing evacuations of a number of homes in the area. The fire was reported just before 5 p.m. http://murrieta.patch.com/articles/fire-break-out-in-murrieta-s-warm-springs-preserve

Hey everyone!! Where was this fire in North East Temecula, or Murrieta at about 500 to 545pm Sunday? Not sure of the time cause we were out in the pool when it started and was put out. A chitload of fire trucks etc. going in that direction for a good 20 minutes, and they had water on that thing pretty fast and then to the white smoke and out. Whatever it was started HOT and Burning FAST black smoke. Hoping no one lost a home or business. Mirna? Got any ideas on this one yet? Sunday 23rd, around 5 to 545pm. From the mall area it was north east of Margarita.
