A homeowner is safe after waking up to a fire in his garage near Arizona Avenue and Guadalupe early Friday morning.
Firefighters say a man got up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water and smelled smoke. He soon realized his garage was in flames and called 911.
Crews responded quickly and were able to get the fire under control, however, much of the contents of the garage were burned.
Firefighters found smoking materials, like cigarettes, in the garage and believe they may have contributed to the fire.
Investigators are still working to identify the cause of the fire.
