— Engine 31 responded to a report of a truck that drove through a garage in the 3000 block of Cajon Court around 3:40 p.m. on Oct. 30.

The driver said she pulled into the driveway to turn around and that her brakes failed, causing the truck to crash through the metal rollup garage door and into the garage.

The driver, nor the family at the residence, reported any injuries from the crash.

To try and minimize any further damage to the house, the firefighters cut the door panels off with a mini cutter to get the truck out of the structure.
