A house on Tucson's east side caught fire Monday night and reignited Tuesday morning, Rural Metro investigators told Tucson News Now. 

Damage to the roof and home in the 11000 Block of E. St. James Place rendered it a total loss, Capt. Grant Cesarek said. 

Firefighters responded at 7 p.m. Monday and fought a fire in the attic and on the roof before leaving Tuesday morning, Cesarek said.  

The fire reignited later Tuesday morning, he said. 

The home is near the intersection of East 22nd Street and South Melpomene Road.
