A small fire in a garage on La Questa Way in Woodside was quickly extinguished Dec. 22 at around 5:40 p.m.
The fire was in a container and was so quickly extinguished it did no significant damage, according to Battalion Chief Jerry Nave of the Woodside Fire Protection District.
A call had gone out to firefighters from stations in Menlo Park, Redwood City and Portola Valley, but they turned around minutes after firefighters from Woodside's main and Jefferson Avenue stations arrived and quickly had the situation under control, Mr. Nave said.
The homeowner had called 911 after trying to extinguish the fire herself, Mr. Nave said. By the time firefighters got there, the fire was just smoldering.
