Firefighters quickly put out a garage fire in Billings Friday night.

Several engines responded to the structure fire behind the home at 640 Cook Avenue.

Battalion Chief Jason Lyon said the call came in at 6:10 and crews had the fire out in about eight minutes.

The fire charred the exterior siding of the garage, the outside of a neighbor's garage and caused a power line to fall, according to Deputy Fire Marshal Andrew McLain.

Two homes lost power.

Paramedics treated one man for minor problems from the smoke.

The fire caused about $25,000 worth of damage.

McLain stated in a news release that the cause of the fire is under investigation.
