MILLCREEK — Firefighters saved a home in Millcreek on Friday after a fire that started in a garage threatened the rest of the structure.

"When we arrived, we had a two-car garage, which was attached to the home, fully involved with fire," Unified Fire Authority spokesman Cliff Burningham said. "It did extend slightly into the home, doing minor damage to a bedroom and then a laundry room."

Burningham estimated damage at between $50,000 and $100,000. There is smoke damage throughout the home, he said.

The family likely will be displaced until repairs can be made, officials said.

It took crews just 12 minutes to put out the fire.
