TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Fire Department responded to two fires early this morning.

The first fire was at a local food bank near Craycroft Road and Valencia Road. According to Capt. Chris Jurvig, multiple reports were made about smoke and flames coming from a building.

Upon arrival, the firefighters immediately recognized that the fire was exterior but up against the building and in danger of spreading into the interior.

Fire crews were able to successfully stop the fire from spreading into the interior of the structure. They were able to confine the fire to the exterior several pallets had been burning.

Because food was being stored in the structure, Pima County Health Department was notified and responded to the incident.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The second fire occurred in the 1100 block of South Osborne Avenue near west 22nd street and Interstate 10.

Fire crews found flames and smoke coming from multiple windows of the house. They were able to recognize that the house had been abandoned because it had fencing and signs posted.

After gaining access, crews pulled hose lines into the structure to search for occupants and extinguish the blaze. Crews were able to knock the fire down quickly and ensure that there were no victims present.

There were no injuries and Building Safety responded to secure the structure while fire investigators remained on scene to conduct their investigation.

This was the second structure fire TFD firefighters responded to in a four hour window.
