Columbia firefighters responded to a fire inside a garage on Vandiver Dr. on Sunday.

Jerry Jenkins, an assistant fire chief with the Columbia Fire Department, told ABC 17 News around 3:30 p.m. that the fire was put out. Crews were working to get smoke out of the building and check for hotspots, Jenkins said.

A car caught fire inside the garage, according to the fire marshal on scene. It’s not clear what sparked the flames. No injuries were reported.
