Five fire companies responded to the call that came in at about 10:30 a.m.

“We had a fairly quick response time and we were able to knock it down fairly quickly,” said  Capt. Paul Peppard of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The flames were contained to the garage and did not extend into the home at 25808 Tenneyson Lane.

Damage was estimated at $75,000 to the structure plus $10,000 in personal property, Peppard said. No injuries were reported.
