Bloomington Fire Department says no injuries have been reported after a suspected impaired driver crashed into a garage that led to a house fire early Tuesday. 

The vehicle crashed into a house on the 200 block of E. 107th St., with a 2nd-alarm fire at the house erupting after the collision. Crews worked to extinguish the fire, with the department announcing that it was under control around 8:30 a.m. – approximately four hours after the crash. 

Bloomington Police Department reports that the crash involved an "erratic driver" who "lost control," causing the 2003 Buick LeSabre to leave the roadway and hit a garage, then leading to a fire that spread to the home. 

No one was at home at the time of the crash and fire. The driver, a 52-year-old Minneapolis man, and three passengers in the car were uninjured.

The driver was arrested and taken into custody on pending charges of probable cause 2nd-degree DUI, hit-and-run, and a Domestic Abuse No Contact Order (DANCO) violation. 

Firefighters from several Bloomington crews and Burnsville Fire Department responded to the blaze.
