GENEVA – No injuries were reported Saturday in a fire that damaged a Geneva home, the Geneva Fire Department said in a news release.

Firefighters responded to 3152 Larrabee Drive in the Fisher Farms subdivision at about 4:40 p.m. after a neighbor noticed smoke coming from the garage and alerted the occupants, according to the release.

Upon arrival, emergency officials reportedly found the garage fully involved in fire. The blaze was contained to the garage and did not extend into the main portion of the residence, the department said.

Two vehicles in the driveway and vinyl siding of a neighboring house sustained damage due to radiant heat, officials reported.

The fire is under investigation. The release indicated that foul play is not suspected.

Damage to the home and contents was estimated at $150,000, according to the release.

Units from the St. Charles, Batavia, Elburn and West Chicago fire departments assisted at the scene. The Geneva Police Department provided traffic control.
