Adjacent garages catch fire

Firefighters on Saturday put out a blaze in a detached garage on Wilson Avenue that spread next door to another garage, officials said.

No injuries were reported in the fire, which started about 6:57 a.m. in a two-story home in the 600 block of West Wilson Avenue, Glendale Fire Capt. Stuart Stefani said.

The garage was engulfed when firefighters arrived, so they evacuated the home’s residents, he said.

Heat from the fire ignited a second blaze on a neighbor’s six-car detached garage, Stefani said.

Fire crews confined the second blaze to an attic area in the remodeled garage, he said.

The fires were knocked down about 7:35 a.m.

Damage to the garages was estimated at $70,000. Another $10,000 worth of contents was also destroyed.

Cat resuscitated after home blaze

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies used oxygen to revive a cat rescued from a burning home last week in La Crescenta.

Deputies Roger Burt, Chad Plumier and Brian Tibbett responded to the fire at 5113 Glenwood Ave. about 10:30 a.m. June 6.

The home’s occupants were away at the time, but a crew from L.A. County Fire Station 82 found the cat inside, which deputies revived outside while firefighters extinguished the blaze.

The home sustained more than $25,000 of damage in the fire, likely caused by a curling iron left on in a bedroom closet, according to an incident report.
