House fire causes $30K in damage

More than $30,000 in damage was caused in a blaze that swept through a home’s garage Saturday in Northeast Glendale, fire officials said.

The blaze occurred at about 4:23 a.m. in a detached, single-story garage and small home office, which was attached to the rear of the building in the 2900 block of Graceland Way, fire officials said.

Seven Glendale fire units, a rescue ambulance and two additional crews from Los Angeles and Pasadena fire departments responded to the blaze amid fears that the fire would spread into the hillside, Battalion Chief Greg Godfrey said.

No injuries were reported in the fire, which was knocked down in less than an hour.

Damage was estimated at $25,000 to the building and $7,000 to contents, fire officials said.
