Authorities are investigating a fire that destroyed part of a residential property Saturday afternoon in the Venice Park section of Atlantic City.

Atlantic City firefighters responded at about 1:30 p.m. to the 1900 block of East Riverside Drive. They arrived to find flames had engulfed a semi-detached garage and spread to the siding of the single-level house there, Fire Chief Dennis Brooks said.

They brought the blaze under control within 13 minutes, but not before the roof of the garage had collapsed, Brooks said.

No one was hurt as a result of the fire, he said.

The property owner, listed as Dennis Morgan in current tax records, was the only person home at the time, Brooks said.
