Papillion firefighters battled an fire that damaged several garages at a La Vista apartment complex Wednesday evening.

Firefighters were called to the Shadow Ridge Apartments near 84th and Brentwood Drive shortly after 8 p.m.. When firefighters arrived flames were shooting out of one garage, which spread to other garages that were attached to it. 

Investigators say the fire started while a man was working on his car.  He thought he had the flames put out, but they had spread to the upper part of the garage and then to the other garages.

At least a dozen garages were damaged. One person suffered minor burns.
