No one was injured in a Sunday night fire in the 700 block of Lassen Way in the Gardnerville Ranchos.

East Fork Fire District personnel responded to the report of a garage on fire at about 8:30 p.m.

Crews worked quickly to hold the fire in the garage and limit damage to the interior of the structure, according to Battalion Chief Troy Valenzuela. There was also a vehicle in the garage which was destroyed in the blaze.

One person was at home at the time of the fire, and was alerted by a neighbor who saw the flames.

The fire rendered the home uninhabitable, Valenzuela said.

Members of the Red Cross disaster team are working with the homeowner and the renter.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
