TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Two people are displaced after a fire broke out early this morning in the 2900 block of East 19th street. 

According to Tucson Fire, the resident stated that he was using a kitchen appliance when he left the room. He came back to the kitchen and stated it was on fire.

The resident was able to get out of the house and take his birds with him.

Several calls were placed to 911 from neighbors and TFD confirmed heavy smoke in the area as they approached.

The primary search of the house was clear and they extinguished the flames in the kitchen area of the house.

The ladder crew on scene cut a hole in the roof to assist with visibility for the interior crew. Units also used a thermal imaging camera to assist and also used high powered fans to remove residual smoke inside the house.

There were no injuries to firefighters and the resident did not want assistance from Red Cross.

The cause and origin of the fire are still under investigation as investigators had not gone into the home yet due to toxic gases that were still in the home.
