YAKIMA, WA - Yakima Firefighters are trying to figure out how a group of squatters started a fire in a garage Thursday night. 

Firefighters say the flames completely destroyed the building on the 1100 block of north 2nd Street around 10:00 PM.

Firefighters say the garage may have been a gathering place for runaways or transients, but when crews arrived, no one was inside. 

Nobody got hurt, but firefighters say the building suffered about $6000 in damages.
