HOUSTON - A car fire in a parking garage caused quite a bit of chaos in the Galleria area.

The fire broke out around 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the garage of the Courtyard At Marriott Hotel on South Rice near Hidalgo.

Officials said it could have been a lot worse, but the sprinkler system kicked in and prevented the fire from spreading.

Firefighters said the fire wasn't suspicious and started in the engine.

No one was injured.
