Sacramento Metro Fire crews responded to a fire at the 5700 block of Ivy Town Lane in Carmichael Sunday around 5 a.m.
According to an official's report, crews arrived to find the fire, which appeared to have started with a fence and tree in the yard, extending to the eaves and attic of one unit in a triplex. Crews worked to evacuate residents of all three homes while other firefighters extinguished the fire, shut off utilities, and ventilated the structure, according to Metro Fire spokeswoman Michelle Eidam.

According to the report, the fire incurred $40,000 to $50,000 in damage. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this point.
