GALT—

A home along Oberlin Way went up in smoke after a two-alarm fire Wednesday morning.

Fire crews showed up to the home, just off of McFarland Street, sometime after 9 a.m.

By around 9:45 a.m. the fire was put out, but not before the home was extensively damaged, Cosumnes Fire Department officials say. Crews were able to keep the fire from spreading to surrounding homes.

No one was injured in the fire.

Investigators have found that the fire was likely an electrical accident.
