PIMA COUNTY, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Crews responded to a house fire near Ina Road and La Cholla Boulevard Thursday night. 

Capt. Grant Cesarek with Rural/Metro Fire says crews with the Mountain Vista Fire District responded to the 7400 block of Paseo Ronceval after a Southwest Ambulance crew reported smoke in the area. 

The fire started in the garage and then spread to 75 percent of the home and also a car in the front yard.

An off-duty firefighter who lives in the neighborhood helped get all the residents of the home out safely.

Firefighters worked quickly to get hose lines in place and stop the fire from destroying the home.

No one was injured in the fire and investigators are on scene to determine the cause and damage.
