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.
Crews contained the fire to the garage, but nine people in the home along with four dogs were displaced. Local Red Cross staff members were assisting the residents Saturday as an investigation into the fire continues.
