The fire broke out around 8:03 p.m. and originated in the engine compartment of a car parked in the basement level of an attached garage. The fire was contained to the garage and the cause of the fire remains unknown, according to Public Information Officer Jessica Glicker.

No injuries have been reported, but the home is severely damaged by smoke and has been deemed uninhabitable.
