Two people died and one person was hospitalized because of a fire in downtown Garrett early Monday.

Garrett Fire Chief Ted Christensen said the fire started in a mixed-use building that had rental sleeping rooms upstairs.

Seven people were living upstairs in the building when the fire began around 12:30 a.m., he said.

Firefighters kept the fire from spreading to two nearby buildings.

The state fire marshal is investigating, Christensen said.
