Indio garage fire
A fire charred the garage of an Indio home Saturday and displaced a family of four, but no one was hurt, a fire spokeswoman said.
Firefighters got a 911 call at 5:47 a.m. and raced to the single-story home in the 81700 block of Dalea Avenue, said Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson.
The fire was contained in about 30 minutes but had caused an estimated
$200,000 in damages to the home. The American Red Cross was called to help a
couple and their two children find a temporary place to stay, Hendrickson said.
The fire did not spread to other homes and was under investigation, she
