The Atascadero Fire Department says a fire on the 7800 block of Sinaloa Road in Atascadero on Thursday was started by a juvenile playing with a lighter.
The fire started just before 4:30 pm.
Fire officials say a detached garage was burned, along with a 100x100 square foot area of brush in the backyard of a home.
Firefighters say the resident's weed abatement efforts helped slow the spread of the fire.
Damage is estimated at more than $25,000.
