Fire officials say that a family returned home Saturday evening to find their duplex going up in smoke.

Crews showed up at the duplex near Loucreta Drive and Power Inn Road just before 7 p.m., finding a fully involved garage fire.

Fearing the fire could spread rapidly, thanks to the kind of home up in smoke, crews acted quickly.

The fire was put out before it could reach the other side of the duplex, and all residents were safe and accounted for. Officials estimate that about $250,000 worth of property was saved.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the fire.
