SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A fire caused an estimated $400,000 worth of damage to a Mira Mesa home this afternoon.

The non-injury blaze in the 8800 block of Hillery Drive erupted for unknown reasons about 3:15 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Crews arrived to find smoke and flames emanating from the garage of the two-story house, SDFRD spokesman Alec Phillipp said. It took the personnel about 20 minutes to subdue the blaze, he said.
