TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A family in Oro Valley awoke to find flames shooting from their back patio grill early Sunday morning.

Golder Ranch Firefighters arrived at the home in the 100 block of West Greenock to find heavy smoke and flames surrounding the built-in grill on the back patio. The fire had spread to nearby walls connected to the home, according to Golder Ranch Battalion Chief Josh Hurguy.

Fire fighters were able to put out the fire within a matter of minutes, resulting in limited damage. There were no injuries and the residents will be able to remain in their home.

Golder Ranch released a statement, reminding everyone to exercise caution when barbecuing over this Memorial Weekend. For safety, they recommend double checking the grilling area for fire flammables and ensuring that any burning material is properly extinguished before leaving the grill unattended.
