A family of four and their pet birds were displaced by a fire today in their home on Tucson's east side.
Three people were home when the fire started just before noon in the home in the 8000 block of East Hayne Street near South Pantano Road and East Broadway Boulevard. All three escaped uninjured.
Firefighters also safely removed seven exotic birds from the home while searching for anyone else that may have been inside.
Tucson Fire Department investigators have determined that the fire, which started in a bedroom, was accidental. Damages have been estimated at $60,000.
