    Two families were displaced after a fire destroyed their homes in San Carlos Sunday evening.

    The fire started at about 6:30 p.m. at a home in the 6900 block of Cowles Mountain Boulevard. When fire crews arrived, they saw flames and smoke coming from the garage.

    The fire quickly spread to the second home; two adults and seven children exited safely, fire officials said. Despite efforts to resuscitate a pet dog, the dog died in the fire.

    Fire officials said the fire started in the garage, but they aren’t sure how it started. Damage is estimated at $600,000.

    The American Red Cross is assisting the two families.
