An intense garage fire spread to several other garages before causing an electrical explosion. The fire happened around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday at 115 Walts Avenue.
Firefighters say that a detached garage was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived. The fire spread to an adjacent garage and two neighboring detached garages.
The fire caused several electrical explosions and extended up a power pole, burning several power lines.
Xcel Energy was on scene to restore power to six homes.
A wood fence and a van parked in the driveway were also damaged by the fire. No one was injured and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
