A spokesperson for Beaumont Fire Rescue said a fire at a detached garage Saturday may have been deliberately set.
The fire happened around 6:30 p.m. at a garage behind a home located at 2315 Gladys. When Beaumont Fire Rescue units arrived the garage was fully involved with fire.
While firefighters were putting out the flames, additional crews checked the house and found the homeowner asleep. Firefighters were able to get the homeowner out safety.
The fire department spokesperson said the cause of the fire appears to be deliberate. An investigation into the fire is ongoing.
