Firefighters knocked down a garage fire Friday in Venice that threatened another building, and arson investigators were headed to the scene to interview an arson suspect in police custody.

The blaze at 749 E. Brooks Ave. was reported just before 5 p.m., Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart.

The department sent 34 firefighters to the scene and extinguished the flames in about 27 minutes, Stewart said.

No victims were reported.
