Tucson fire crews battled a grease fire in a midtown apartment building on Sunday night.

According to TFD, multiple 911 calls came in just after 7:00 pm about smoke coming from inside the apartment located in the 4300 block of E. Pima Street. The first fire engine arrived on the scene at 7:14 p.m., quickly getting to work to rescue the occupants, including a man, woman and dog.

The two residents and their pet escaped without serious injury, although one of them was evaluated by paramedics on the scene. More units responded to help shut down the fire by 7:23 pm.

Fire officials say the grease fire was sparked by unattended cooking, an all-too-common cause for fires in the area.

The Red Cross of Southern Arizona is assisting the man, woman and dog displaced by the fire.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
