No one was injured after a fire authorities suspect started in the garage of a Costa Mesa home Saturday, the Costa Mesa fire department said.
Twenty-five firefighters kept the fire to the garage of the single-family home at 890 Joann Street.
The blaze caused an estimated $20,000 in damage, according to a fire department press release.
Fire investigators had not determined the fire's cause as of Saturday evening.
Four engines and two trucks arrived at the one-story house at 11:19 a.m. Saturday, the release said.
Firefighters reported smoke coming from the garage and searched the property.
A smoke detector alerted the lone occupant inside the one-story house to exit uninjured, fire authorities said.
