Fire destroys garage in Santee

A fire tore through a Santee home’s garage Thursday morning, destroying a van inside, fire officials said.

A neighbor called the Santee Fire Department around 11 a.m. after seeing smoke coming from the building on Princess Marcie Drive near Princess Arlene Drive.

Fire Chief John Garlow said the blaze started in the garage and firefighters were able to keep the flames away from the rest of the home.

The garage was completely destroyed, and a van inside the garage was heavily damaged, Garlow said. Video from OnScene TV shows the garage roof collapsed and the entire space was burned.

Much of the single-story house sustained smoke damage, Garlow said.

Fire officials said the residents were home when the fire started, but the garage was closed and they were able to get out safely.

No one was injured, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
