TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Fire Department is looking into what sparked a house fire near Alvernon and Pima early this morning.

TFD received multiple 911 calls around 3:30 a.m. reporting flames and heavy smoke coming from a home in the 3900 Block of E. Desmond Lane.  When crews were finally able to get into the home they reported the majority of flames were coming from the kitchen.  TFD officials are not saying this was the source of the fire, they are still investigating the cause. 

No estimates yet on the damages to the vacant home, according to TFD.  There is also a Tucson Police crime scene unit at the home. 

Both crews are still working to figure out where and how the fire started.
