SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A woman and her dog escaped a house fire in Shreveport unharmed.

It happened shortly after 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at a residence in the 9400 block of Oleander Drive. That's off Crabapple Drive in Shreveport's Southern Hills neighborhood.

Fire officials say a car caught fire, sending a garage that is attached to a home up in flames.

A KSLA News 12 camera crew could see smoke coming from the dwelling when it arrived on site.

At one point, more than a dozen firefighters and emergency crew members were on the scene. They got the fire under control within 15 minutes.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
