TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A family of five is out of their home this morning after a late night kitchen fire.

The Tucson Fire Department was called out to an apartment in the 7400 block of East 22nd Street around 9:24 Tuesday night. When they arrived, they found out a neighbor with a fire extinguisher was able to put out the fire.

It all started when the mother made dinner for the family. One of the children asked for more, but then changed his mind. His mother forgot to turn the stove off. The oil ignited and started a fire on the stove top and it extended to the cabinets.

The mother and children found the fire and ran to a neighbor's apartment for help. That's when the neighbor used the fire extinguisher to put out the flames.
No one was hurt. The family is going to stay with relatives.
