A car fire that spread to a garage and home in Long Beach on Monday left two people and their two dogs displaced but no one was injured, authorities said.
The fire was reported to the Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD) at 11:10AM on the 6800 block of East 10th Street, according to spokesman Brian Fisk.
The incident began when a car inside the garage caught on fire, he said. The flames then took hold of the house and attic until firefighters conducted an extensive overhaul operation and were able to extinguish the fire about 20 minutes later.
