SANTA ROSA BEACH — The South Walton Fire District responded to a two-story residential fire Monday, stemming from the owner's vehicle parked inside the garage.
Sammy Sanchez, fire marshal for the South Walton Fire District, said crews made an aggressive attack against the fire, located on Mystic Cobalt Street, and were able to contain it to the garage. There was, however, very minor smoke damage to the home.
The State Fire Marshal was called out to investigate, Sanchez said, and determined the fire did originate from within the vehicle.
The owner was in the home at the time and escaped safely. No injuries were reported.
