CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Firefighters put out a vehicle on fire inside a southwest Cedar Rapids garage Tuesday morning.
Officials responded to a garage fire at 404 Ninth Ave. SW around 9:45 a.m. to discover an SUV on fire. Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, and no one was injured. According to officials on scene, one of the garage owners, Krystal Renken, was alerted by a neighbor that the garage was on fire. Renken and the neighbor attempted to extinguish the blaze with a garden hose as a second neighbor called 911.
The fire did not expand to nearby buildings, and no one was displaced, officials said. The cause remains under investigation.
