Redding fire crews have knocked down small fire that started in a vehicle then spread to a duplex on Carson Drive Thursday morning.

The fire was reported around 8:30 a.m. when the duplex owner smelled smoke, walked outside and saw a Ford SUV engulfed in flames.

The SUV was just five feet away from the duplex and flames quickly spread to the attic.

Crews were able to contain the flames to the attic, but estimate there is around $10,000 worth of damages to the home and the $15,000 SUV was completely destroyed.

No injuries have been reported and the cause is under investigation.
