A Nampa garage is a total loss, following a fire Monday afternoon.

Nampa Fire Department officials responded to a report of a structure fire in the 800 block of West Greenhurst Road, between Pascoe Lane and San Francisco Street.

The fire erupted when a spark from equipment the resident was working with hit an ignition source, officials said.

Embers from the fire landed on the roof of a nearby house, causing about $1,000 in damage, according to the fire department. Crews were able to quickly extinguish the house fire.

Greenhurst Avenue was shut down for about two hours, as traffic was diverted.

The man who was working in the garage at the time escaped uninjured.
