It was a long, cold night for firefighters battling a three-alarm fire in the southeast metro.

The fire reportedly started with a call after smoke alarms went off at a home along Skyline Drive in Eagan just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday.


Firefighters arrived to find an attached garage on fire, with flames spreading to the home.

"I guess one of the good messages of this is the residents were awoken by the smoke alarms, so it's good to make sure you have working smoke alarms," Eagan Fire Chief Mike Scott said.

Firefighters said they think the fire started when the vehicle in the garage caught fire. Investigators are looking into the exact cause.

No one was hurt in the fire, authorities said.
