An early Monday morning fire that started in a Galt garage and spread to a nearby duplex displaced two families.

The fire broke out around 2 a.m. in the 200 block of Eric Circle. No one was injured.

The primary unit sustained substantial damage and the second smoke damage, Cosumnes Fire District Batallion Chief Greg Langer said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

At one point, there were four engines, two trucks, two command officers and a medic unit dispatched, according to Cosumnes Fire.
