Three people were displaced Thursday morning after a garage and two vehicles caught fire in the northwest valley.

No one was injured after the early morning fire at 5717 Silver Belle St., near Ann Road and Durango Drive, according to Las Vegas Fire Department spokesman Tim Szymanski.

The fire, which was reported just before 2:30 a.m. Thursday, damaged the vehicles and garage but did not extend to the rest of the house, Szymanski said.

After the fire was extinguished, firefighters removed burned, smoking debris from the garage. A neighbor said she heard two explosions from the building as the fire was burning.

Metropolitan Police Department officers arrived at the scene as well, and evacuated people from neighboring homes before firefighters arrived at the scene, Lt. Peter Kisfalvi said.

Szymanski said the fire, which caused about $75,000 in damage, started in the garage and then spread to the two vehicles. The vehicles were totaled, Szymanski said, but the cause of the fire is undetermined.

The American Red Cross of Southern Nevada is assisting the displaced individuals.
