An Escondido Fire Department crew was investigating what caused a residential garage fire Tuesday that resulted in smoke damage.

The blaze was first reported at 1:56 a.m. at a home in the 1800 block of Jeffrey Avenue.

It took firefighters 30 minutes to extinguish the blaze, which damaged the garage and also caused smoke damage throughout the home, a fire department spokesman said.

There were no injuries, and no cause has been determined, the spokesman said. It was unclear if anyone was at home when the fire broke out.
