Half of a detached garage at a home north of Benton City was destroyed by fire Sunday.
The homeowner called Benton Fire District 2 after noticing smoke from under the eaves of the garage around noon.
No one was in the garage when the fire began, said Capt. Scott Hawley of Benton Fire District 2. It took firefighters about 30 minutes to get the fire under control.
No one was injured, he said. The home at 63114 N. River Road was not near the garage.

The cause has not yet been determined, but it appears accidental, Hawley said. Benton County Sheriff's Office will investigate.
About 25 firefighters helped extinguish the fire, he said. Benton Fire District 4 and Hanford Fire Department assisted.
