Dumpster, garage fire in Burbank under investigation

A dumpster fire early Sunday quickly spread to a two-car garage in Burbank, igniting a fully involved blaze and prompting an investigation by fire officials.

Firefighters battled the flames near Glenoaks and Magnolia boulevards at about 2:50 a.m., said Burbank Fire Capt. Peter Hendrickson.

By 5:15 a.m., about 21 firefighters had knocked down the fire, he said. No one was injured.

Burbank police officers were called to the scene to direct traffic, Hendrickson added.

The blaze caused an estimated $50,000 in damage to the structure and a loss of $15,000 in contents, Hendrickson said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
