Garage fire spreads to El Cajon home

EL CAJON, Calif. — A fire broke out in a garage and spread to a home Thursday evening in El Cajon.

The blaze broke out in the 600 block of 4th Street, near John F. Kennedy Park and Granite Hills High School, just before 6 p.m. Several cars in the garage fueled the flames.

The homeowner said she believes solar panels that were installed last year started the fire, but investigators are still working to determine what sparked the blaze.
