My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

A local family has been displaced following a fire on their back porch.

The incident occurred on Thursday afternoon at a residence on 100 W. Knox Drive, not far from North Stone Avenue. Tucson fire crews arrived around 1:48 p.m. to find thick smoke and flames coming from the porch.

A woman and her two children made it out safely after smelling smoke, and it took firefighters approximately 16 minutes to put out the flames, which had spread from the back porch to a nearby shed and surrounding bushes.

The family’s dog also escaped unhurt, according to a press release, which also said that although the flames did not damage the home’s interior, the family will be displaced. The Red Cross of Southern Arizona will be assisting the family during this time as investigators continue their investigation.

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.
