MADISON (WKOW) -- Investigators are looking for the cause of a fire that burned a detached garage and was threatening the house next to it.

The Madison Fire Department says the fire was reported just after 7 p.m. in the 1400 block of Nevada Road. When firefighters got to the scene, they reported "heavy fire involvement" in the garage. They say the fire was also spreading into the house.

The fire was out about three minutes after firefighters arrived.

Firefighters say they were able to minimize the damage to the house, but there is extensive damage to the garage and its contents. No vehicles were in the garage and no one was inside the home.
