An elderly man narrowly escaped a house fire in Santa Barbara Thursday evening. 

Firefighters say the fire started just after 5 p.m. in the man's garage on the 2600 block Montrose Place in the Mission Canyon Area. 

The flames then spread into the attic and front of the home, causing extensive damage.

The man was able to get out on his own. 

Fire crews contained the fire in the garage and front half of the house. They were able to save the back half of the house. 

No one was hurt in the fire. 

Fire investigators are now working to determine what sparked the fire.
