A house in the 4000 block of Begonia Street in Victoria, caught fire Sunday, burning 25 percent of the structure.

Victoria Fire Department firefighters responded to the emergency call at 9:48 a.m. and were able to extinguish the flames about 10:30 a.m., Battalion Chief Roger Hempel said.

The fire started in the garage, but the cause is still under investigation. As of Monday, the start of the fire appears to be accidental, Victoria's Fire Marshal Tom Legler said. An official cause has not yet been released, Legler said.
