A garage fire in Yakima destroyed a car and caused other damage to the building.

Fire crews were called out to the 200 block of South 7th Street Thursday around 4:00 p.m. for a garage fire. Firefighters say dark smoke was coming from the eaves of the building when they arrived.

The fire poised a challenge because of recyclable materials around the door. A car inside and about 70% of the building is destroyed leading to a damage cost of about $25,000.

Crews say thankfully no one was hurt, the cause of the fire is under investigation.
