CASTRO VALLEY -- A 1-alarm fire completely destroyed a detached garage Monday afternoon on Almond Road, according to the Alameda County Fire Department.

"Nothing's salveagable," said Battalion Chief Terrence Carey after firefighters spent 10 minutes putting down the blaze that was reported at 3:46 p.m. Monday.

The garage sat behind a home and contained some of the landlord's personal belongings, such as paints, Carey said. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
