AUSTIN (KXAN) — A garage was destroyed in a fire caused by a space heater early Tuesday morning.
The Austin Fire Department tweeted at 4:25 a.m. that a detached garage on Colfax Drive was fully on fire.
AFD said the fire was out at 4:52 a.m. and it was confined to the garage. The fire did not affect the house.
The cause of the fire was ruled accidental because a space heater was too close to combustible materials, AFD said.
