One-Alarm Fire Damages Garage in Newark

A one-alarm fire damaged the garage of a residence Wednesday afternoon, an Alameda County fire official said.

No injuries were reported, Battalion Chief Kris Kerstetter said.

About 1 p.m., 24 firefighters responded to reports of a blaze at a residence in the 38000 block of Iris Court, near Robertson Avenue, Kerstetter said.

They saw smoke billowing from the home and cut open the front of the garage to attack the flames, fire officials said.

Firefighters used four three engines, two truck and a heavy-rescue vehicle to contain the blaze to the garage and they extinguished it within 10 minutes, Kerstetter said.

The fire did about $5,000 in damage to the garage, he said.

Investigators have determined that the blaze started from oily rags that spontaneously combusted after being left in the garage, fire officials said.
