Firefighters Contain 2-Alarm Garage Fire In San Anselmo

SAN ANSELMO (CBS SF) -- Multiple agencies have contained a two-alarm fire to a single structure in San Anselmo Wednesday afternoon, according to authorities.

The Rose Valley Fire Department tweeted about the fire at around 1:42 p.m. on Hillside Avenue in San Anselmo.

The structure on fire, a detached garage, was fully involved when fire crews arrived.

Marin County Fire was also responding to the fire. As of shortly after 2 p.m., a second alarm was called. Ross Valley Fire stated that there was no threat to the fire extending into nearby wildlands at this time.

As of 2:11 p.m., Marin County Fire said that the fire had been contained to one structure, which was determined to be a garage. Three vehicles were in the garage, including a Ferrari, a sports car that appeared to be a Lamborghini and a third vehicle that looked like the Batmobile from the '60s television series Batman. It was no known if it was a vehicle used in the show or a model.

The streets in the area are steep and very narrow, allowing only one truck at a time to climb up the lane. That is something Marin County firefighters have been deeply concerned about for decades

"We've up staffed resources given the fire conditions. Had this gone into the vegetation, we're on a pretty steep hill that backs up to the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed, said Ross Valley Fire Department Battalion Chief Brett McTigue. So had this gotten away from us, we had a strike team in a staging area."

Firefighters will remain on the scene for hours to ensure there are no flare-ups.
