Fire tears through residential garage in Pasadena

PASADENA — A fire gutted the attached garage of a home early Sunday, destroying or damaging three motorcycles, a car and a pickup truck inside, authorities said.
No one was hurt in the fire, which ignited just before 5 a.m. inside a garage in the 300 block of Linda Rosa Avenue, between Foothill Boulevard and Corson Street, Pasadena Fire Department spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.
Firefighters arrived to find the garage “well-involved” with fire, she said. Two adults and a child had already evacuated themselves from the affected home, as well as a single occupant of a neighboring home also threatened by the fire.
About 30 firefighters extinguished the flames, which caused an estimated $200,000 worth of damage to the structure and the vehicles parked inside, Derderian said.
The home attached to the gutted garage was determined to be uninhabitable, and the Red Cross was summoned to help the residents find temporary lodging, officials said.
The neighbor was also displaced, primarily to do a lack of utilities following the fire, Derderian added. The neighboring home was not significantly damaged by the fire.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
