By From page A2 | May 10, 2013

An alert homeowner prevented a vehicle fire from spreading to his house Wednesday night in El Macero, according to the Davis Fire Department.

Spokeswoman Evelyn George said the resident of a home in the 44000 block of Country Club Drive parked his truck in the garage after coming home from work. When he went to the garage to retrieve some papers at about 9:40 p.m., he noticed smoke rising from the vehicle.

He managed to drive the truck out of the garage before it became fully engulfed in flames, George said. There was no extension of the fire to the residence, and no injuries were reported.
