Firefighters battle blaze, residents not displaced
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A Tucson home suffered about $5,000 in damages after a fire on Monday night.
Cpt. Chris Jurvig with Tucson Fire tells KGUN9 that a single 911 call was placed by the residents of a home in the 200 block of South Swan Road after they smelled smoke in their home and went outside and discovered flames on the roof.
All the resident from inside the home made it out safely.
When fire crews arrived on scene, they found the house filled with smoke, said Jurvig.
Building Safety responded to the scene and determined the residents would be allowed back into the home, having been temporarily evacuated for approximately two hours.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, said Jurvig.
Tucson Fire reminds the public that calling 911 as soon as you see smoke or flames allows TFD resources to get to the emergency as fast as possible. Fires can grow quickly and the faster our resources are notified the better chance we have of reducing property damage or potentially having to rescue.
