Teen hospitalized after Phoenix garage catches fire

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

A 17-year-old girl was hospitalized after a garage caught fire near 91st Avenue and Thomas early Wednesday morning.

Neighbors reportedly called 911 around 4:30 a.m. after hearing a number of explosions and seeing flames flying from a home's garage.

Six people were inside the home: two parents, two siblings and two cousins.

We're told a 17-year-old girl was taken to the hospital for minor smoke inhalation.

A small truck and a small SUV were inside the garage at the time and were extremely damaged. A car in the driveway was also damaged in the fire.

Phoenix Fire Capt. Jonathan Jacobs says the explosions neighbors heard were the vehicles' tires popping and compressed gases in paint cans.

It appears the fire may have started inside one of the vehicles.

Officials believe the fire was accidental, but investigators are still figuring out what happened.
