House fire displaces six, Red Cross assists

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A house fire near Valencia and 6th Avenue has displaced six people this afternoon.

According to Capt. Barrett Baker with the Tucson Fire Department, crews responded to the fire on Elvado around 2:30 p.m.

Baker said the flames were at the back of the residence. Firefighters had problems with visibility inside the house so they had to punch out two holes in the roof to let out smoke.

Inspectors have offically condemned the home, and the Red Cross is assisting.
