A fire early this morning in Concord destroyed a detached garage at a vacant single-family home, officials with the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District said.

The fire was first reported at 5:17 a.m. at the corner of Concord Avenue and Fremont Street.

No one was injured and firefighters had the fire extinguished in a little more than an hour, Contra Costa County Fire Protection District Capt. Lisa Martinez said.

The heat from the fire caused some discoloration of the stucco on the home at 2181 Fremont St., but did no other damage, Martinez said.

Firefighters are still investigating what started the fire.

The “cause” is the homeless who have INFESTED the place for years.

And for sometime the owner had filed an order with Concord PD to arrest trespassers when they trespass. Looks like the police never did, they would run them off temporarily but half an our later they would be back. This fire was unavoidable and inevitable.

Were marshmallows found on site?

Why yes there were some found there.

Safe and protected from the fire by all the drug paraphernalia piled up on them.
