A vacant two-story residential garage sustained $11,000 in damage Sunday in what the York City fire chief described as a suspicious fire.

Crews were dispatched to the 600 block of West Philadelphia Street shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday, March 10, for reports of a structure fire.

York City Fire Chief Chad Deardorff said there was a fair amount of smoke and flames coming from the second floor when firefighters arrived.

There were no injuries reported, and Deardoff said the property owner was at the scene. The fire is currently under investigation.
