Fire cause investigators are on their way to Murray Bridge this morning after flames destroyed a shed and garage on neighbouring properties.

MFS crews were called to the property just after 4:30am on Monday (July 30) finding a single car garage with three cars inside, and a 50m by 20m metre shed well alight and threatening to spread to nearby homes.

MFS supported by CFS crews managed to control the blaze within 30 minutes with only minor damage to the eaves of a nearby house.

The residents of both properties were home at the time, all managed to evacuate and no one was injured.

The cause of the fire is undetermined at this stage but police don't believe it is suspicious. The damage bill has been set at up to $120,000.
