TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) – A mother and daughter are now looking for a new place to live after their home was destroyed in a fire on the southwest side.

The Tucson Fire Department says the fire started just before 10:30 Tuesday morning in the 2800 block of South Cottonwood Lane, near West Silverlake Road and Santa Cruz River Park.

In a news release, Captain Barrett Baker said two people were home at the time, the mother and her friend. He said the friend suffered minor burns and irritation from smoke inhalation while trying to remove items from the house.

According to the news release, the resident who called 911 said the fire started in the bedroom.

Captain Baker said the house was about half covered in flames when they arrived. He said his crews immediately started using extra hoses, and they cut a hole in the roof to help with ventilation. A total of seven units and 20 firefighters were dispatched to the scene. The fire was under control within minutes of their arrival.

The origin and cause of the fire is under investigation. The house is a total loss.

The man with the minor burns refused medical treatment. There were no other injuries.

The Red Cross is assisting the family.
