SPOKANE, Wash. -- Firefighters are trying to figure out how a Spokane Fire District 10's Chief's SUV caught fire destroying four garages and damaged an apartment in West Spokane.

The call was reported at the 1300 block of South Westcliff Place at the Indian Canyon Apartments just before 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.  When firefighters arrived, a garage was engulfed in flames and the fire spread to three other garages.  Firefighters quickly upgraded the fire to two alarms.

The flames eventually moved to the apartment complex and scorched the outside of the building.

The flames also destroyed another carport and a ''98 Camaro.  

The owner of the Camaro said it was her husband's car and he's deployed in Afghanistan.  As of last night, he did not know about the fire.
