In less than an hour, a fire that had spread to seven automobiles, four garages, and one home was extinguished, according to the Moline Fire Department. The fire was in the 2900-block of 16th Ave. in Moline shortly after 1 a.m. on Tuesday, August 13, 2013.

Two of the garages were fully engulfed in flames, officials said. People who were living in the homes in and around the fire had self-evacuated.

The outside of the house was damaged, but officials say it is repairable. The inside sustained smoke damage.

No injuries were reported.
