TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A family was displaced after an unattended grill reportedly caught their home on fire.

Capt. Barrett Baker with the Tucson Fire Department said a man thought he extinguished the wood used on an outside grill around 12:30 p.m., but a woman heard smoke alarms and discovered a fire outside their house a few hours later.

The two adults, in addition to an 8-year-old, 1-year-old and a four-month old, were able to exit safely from their residence in the 800 block of W. Budmoore Terrace.  A neighbor also called 911 to report the flames, but didn't know if anyone was in the house. 

A total of eight units and 21 firefighters were able to limit the fire to the exterior of the home, Baker said.

No injuries to the family members or firefighters were reported. The total estimate of damages was not determined.
