A fire on Madison’s east side caused approximately $325,000 in damage to a home and $20,000 in damage to a neighboring home Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

Crews responded to reports of a structure fire around 2 p.m. at 22 La Crescenta Circle, according to a release. Smoke could be seen from more than a mile away.

When crews arrived, they reported a fully involved garage fire that was extending into the single-story home. The wall of a neighboring home was also starting to burn, officials said.

An adult and two children were home at the time of the fire but got out safely, according to a release. Crews searched both homes to make sure everyone had gotten out safely.

The fire is still under investigation.
