Fire investigators are pointing to a butane honey oil operation as the cause of a garage fire that chased six adults and three children from their Rancho Cordova home early Saturday and say they have a suspect in the blaze.

Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District crews were called to the blaze in the 4000 block of Andedon Circle about 4:30 a.m., quickly knocking down the flames, searching for residents and rescuing a dog from inside the home, officials said. Two people were taken to a local hospital after the early-morning fire, though officials said their injuries were not fire-related.
