Fire destroys Rohnert Park garage, car

Rohnert Park firefighters moved quickly Saturday to contain a garage fire so that flames would not spread to an adjacent apartment complex.

Multiple callers reported the 2:29 p.m. blaze at a garage adjacent to an apartment complex at 921 Kirsten Court, off Country Club Drive. Rohnert Park firefighters arrived within five minutes to find the garage unit and a car inside engulfed in flames.

Initial crews staged a quick attack to battle the blaze. They were joined by firefighters from Rancho Adobe Fire and Rincon Valley.

The blaze was brought under control within 15 minutes. Damages are estimated at $50,000.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
