CALEXICO — Firefighters here responded this morning to a house fire, the cause of which remains unknown.

Around 12:30 a.m., residents at 705 Calle de Oro smelled smoke and discovered a fire in the home's converted garage, said Calexico Fire Department Capt. Peter Mercado.

Firefighters were called and were able to control the fire in 10 minutes, Mercado said.

The cause of the fire, which resulted in about $7,000 worth of damage, remains unknown as firefighters were unable to determine the ignition source, Mercado said, adding the investigation is complete.
