A trash can fire caused $10,000 worth of damage Sunday morning after it spread to a nearby garage.

The fire happened at 1297 SW MacVicar Avenue shortly before 1:00 A.M.

A person driving in the area found the trashcan on fire in the back alley and it quickly spread to a nearby detached garage.

Crews were able to quickly extinguish the flames, but not before the garage sustained moderate fire damage.

Smoke alarms were not present within the garage structure.

The cause is still under investigation.
