Fire officials say garage blaze appears to be accidental
A two-alarm fire that destroyed the garage and part of the roof of a Foster City home Tuesday appears to have been an accident, Foster City Fire Department Battalion Chief Nick Weber said Wednesday.
He estimated damage to the home and its contents at $50,000. Investigators aren’t sure what sparked the blaze at 140 Flying Cloud Isle just before 2 p.m. Neighbors heard two explosions and believed at least one was a propane tank. But Weber said fire officials now believe the sounds were caused by fire extinguishers caught in the flames.
