A fire that burned a detached garage and a small metal shed did an estimated $17,500 damage early Thursday morning, said Topeka Fire Marshal Mike Martin. No one was hurt.

The Topeka Fire Department was called shortly after 1:30 a.m. to the back yard of 1411 N.W. Eugene, where firefighters were told the blaze began in a small metal shed and spread to a nearby detached garage, Martin said. Firefighters contained to the blaze to those buildings, he said.

Eugene, which runs north and south, is located about two blocks west of N.W. Topeka Boulevard, at the fire scene.

The cause of the fire remains undetermined, pending further investigation, Martin said.

He said damages were estimated at $12,500 to the structures and $5,000 to their contents.

Other agencies that assisted at the scene included Westar Energy, Kansas Gas Service and American Medical Response Ambulance Co., Martin said.
