Investigators are looking into the cause of a fire at a foreclosed home in Oakland Wednesday.

A detached garage behind the house on Virginia Avenue near High Street caught fire just before 9 a.m.

The fire was first spotted by the home's former owner who had arrived at the property to collect some of his belongings.

Firefighters battled strong winds to keep the fire from spreading to the house and adjacent homes.

No one was hurt.
