Several agencies are investigating a Westside garage fire described as suspicious.

Police, state fire marshals and state arson detectives were investigating the fire Sunday afternoon at 825 St. Clair Street.

Crews said the fire started in a detached garage on the property. Most of the damage was done to the garage and only some minor damage was done to the home.

No one was home at the time. Crews said they believe someone was working on a car, parked in the garage, before it caught fire.

Detectives removed the car from the property. Authorities have not said what started the blaze.
