Flames damaged a detached garage that contained a wood shop behind a house in Winnetka Monday morning.
The fire was reported at 3:56 a.m. at 8547 N. Keokuk Ave., according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange.
Flames were showing from the structure when firefighters arrived, Prange said.
The bulk of the fire was out at 4:57 a.m. but it was expected to take some time to put out the last of it due to the contents of the wood shop, he said.
Two people were evaluated at the scene for smoke inhalation but refused to be taken to a hospital for treatment, Prange said.
