TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

One person in a Tucson house was able to escape without injury as a fire caused extensive damage to the home Tuesday evening.

Fire Capt. Barrett Baker says firefighters were returning to their station after putting out a brush fire when a passer-by alerted them to the house fire down the block.

The engine company arrived at the house within a minute and found heavy smoke and flames in two bedrooms.

A total of nine units and 23 firefighters ultimately responded.

There weren't any injures and cause of the fire is under investigation.

No estimate of cost of damages is immediately available.
