GALT–

Firefighters came out to save a Galt family’s home early Tuesday morning, but it was a firefighter who eventually needed help. Two ambulances were sent out when part of the roof collapsed on him.

The Cosumnes firefighter’s injuries were minor and he was approved to go back to work later in the morning.

A dog and two cats inside the home on Sunset Drive near Highway 99 and Amador Avenue died from the fire.

A son and father were asleep when the fire started around midnight and made it out safely. The family will be displaced for a few weeks due to installation being damaged in the entire roof.

Two cars and a truck were charred from the fire, which spread through a garage, attic and living room.

It’s unclear how the fire started.
