The cause of a Bundoora garage fire this afternoon is under investigation.

Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) responded to multiple triple-0 calls about the Bendoran Crescent fire shortly before 1.30pm.

Callers to triple-0 said a garage fire was spreading to an adjoining house.

FRV said firefighters arrived on the scene within minutes and entered the single storey house to prevent the fire taking hold.

The occupants of the house were home at the time and managed to safely evacuate.

The garage and the roof of the house were severely damaged, FRV said.

The fire was brought under control in 20 minutes.
