South King County firefighters doused flames that engulfed a detached garage in Auburn early today.

Crews from the Valley Regional Fire Authority responded to a home in the 100 block of E Street Southeast just after 2:10 a.m. They found the garage “fully involved,” a press release states.

The flames were spreading to the home and a vehicle. In addition, electrical wires were arching and explosions were heard in the garage, the press release states.

The occupants of the house got out safely. They told firefighters housed six chickens in the garage.

Firefighters got the flames out in the garage, which was a total loss. About $20,000 damage was done to the house and vehicle, the press release states.

No injuries were reported.
