Fire damages Elk Grove home

An early morning house fire in Elk Grove has displaced five people, authorities said.

The blaze, in the 9600 block of Gamay Way, was reported shortly after 5 a.m. Friday. When firefighters from the Cosumnes Fire Department arrived, they found a “well-involved fire in an attached garage that extended into the attic,” according to a news release.

One resident awoke to the smell of smoke and alerted the other four occupants, officials said. All were evacuated safely.

Authorities put the damage at $150,000.

“Investigators are still working on a cause,” Cosumnes Fire Chief Tracey Hansen said.
