A detached garage at the home of Kurtes Blomquist, 8180 S. Halstead, was destroyed by fire about 3 p.m. Sunday, according to Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan.

Soldan said Blomquist called 911 after noticing the blaze.

Firefighters from Rural Fire Districts 2 and 6 fought the fire and were able to prevent it from spreading to the house.

Soldan said a 2013 Nissan Murano that was inside the garage also was destroyed.

Blomquist told authorities he thought the fire might have been started by a heating lamp he was using to warm the garage for his cats. Soldan said the cats escaped the fire.

Loss was estimated at between $45,000 and $50,000.
