A family’s garage was destroyed and their home was damaged by fire Wednesday.

The fire started in the garage and spread to the house.

The homeowner got out thanks to a neighbor who noticed the glow of the fire from across the street.

Firefighters had to use water tenders for their water supply since there were no hydrants in the rural area.

Clackamas fire investigators are working to figure out how the fire started.
