A Fox Lake garage was severely damaged Saturday after a fire broke out.

The Fox Lake Fire Protection District responded to a call about 1:10 p.m. at 31 Atwater Parkway, Battalion Chief Larry VanHoorelbeke said.

The fire was contained to the garage and a small area of the master bedroom next to the garage. VanHoorelbeke estimated the fire caused about $120,000 worth of damage. The garage was severely damaged, he said.

"The residents were at home, but they all quickly got out, and no one was hurt," VanHoorelbeke said.

Firefighters had the fire under control within 15 to 20 minutes, he said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, VanHoorelbeke said.
