A family of four was displaced but no one was injured after a garage fire in the 1200 block of Scenery Drive, Hampden Township, on Sunday afternoon, police said.

Emergency units were dispatched around 1:30 p.m. in response to a fire that likely began in a Lincoln Navigator, said Hampden Township Police Cpl. Shawn Fullerton.

“We believe it started from a vehicle parked in a driveway outside and spread to the home,” Fullerton said.

Most of the damage occurred in the garage, he said. The Navigator was a total loss, and a Honda van was damaged, he said. The fire was extinguished by about 2 p.m.

No one was injured, but the family living in the home will stay with relatives, he said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
