Garage Fire Ends Up Destroying Home

At least two families were left homeless early Monday after a garage fire spread to an adjacent apartment building in City Heights, authorities said. Resident Veronca Gil, who lives in the apartment building next door, said another resident in the building told her the garage fire was spreading to grass and trees near their building. She went door to door to tell her neighbors to evacuate. The building has about 10 units, and all the families got out safely, she said.
