RANCHO CORDOVA - Three people have been displaced after a duplex in Rancho Cordova caught fire overnight. 

The fire broke out at the home on Nebula Way near Jupiter Drive around 1:20 a.m. When firefighters arrived at the home, they saw heavy fire coming out of the front door, they say.

All residents living in the home, including a cat, were able to get out safely and the fire appears to have been limited to just the unit on the right side; however, the residents at the other unit also had to leave. 

"When you have heavy fire in one unit, it most likely affects that other unit," said a firefighter at the scene. "That other unit might be oblivious to what's going on."

Investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
