A garage fire inside a house in Sand Canyon Sunday night kept firefighters busy for more than an hour, preventing the fire from extending into the house.

Flames and smoke were seen coming from a house at the end of a cul-de-sac on the 15000 block of Toscana Court shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday.

Firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to the fire at 11:04 p.m., arriving there six minutes later, a spokesman for the Fire Department told The Signal Monday morning.

“This structure fire was for a garage fire,” he said. “Firefighters reported seeing a home with smoke and fire.”

At least four fire engines from Battalion 22 responded to the structure fire.

“There was no (fire) extension into the home,” the Fire Department spokesman said.

Although paramedics transported anyone to the hospital, an ambulance was called to the scene, he said.

Firefighters left the scene at 12:15 a.m. Monday.
