KELSO, WA (KPTV) -

A fire in Kelso destroyed a garage and a car Thursday morning.

Firefighters responded to the 200 block of Cowlitz Drive at 6 a.m. A man and woman said they heard crackling sounds and light pops coming from their garage before discovering the fire.

The couple evacuated the home and called 911.

Firefighters arrived to find the garage fully involved. They were able to contain the fire to the garage and save the rest of the home.

Crews were also able to protect two recreational trailers next to the garage.

A small passenger car parked near the garage was totaled, however.

The damage to the garage and its contents is estimated to be $100,000.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
