Santa Clara County firefighters have extinguished a one-alarm fire that caused an estimated $500,000 in damage to the garage of a Los Altos home this morning, a fire official said.
Firefighters responded at 4:30 a.m. to 1504 Country Club Drive, where a 2,000-square-foot garage was on fire, Santa Clara County fire Operations Capt. Gil Smith said. About a third of the garage -- a separated structure located behind the main house -- was on fire when crews arrived, Smith said.
It took firefighters about an hour and a half to extinguish the blaze. Firefighters said the residence was being prepared to undergo remodeling and no one was home at the time. No injuries were reported.
