TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Investigators are still looking into the cause of a townhouse fire on the east side.  It happened Monday afternoon, in the 7500 block of East Terrace Drive. 

Tucson Fire officials say the fire began in the back of the house in a rear storage unit.  According to a TFD release a neighbor knocked on the unit's door and let those inside know their house was on fire. Everyone inside, an adult and two children were able to exit the house safely out the front door. 

Firefighting crews reported seeing heavy smoke as they approached the scene, and that flames had totally engulfed the back of the house. 

Neighboring units were evacuated, according to TFD officials and the fire was quickly put out. It took Tucson Fire nine minutes to put out the fire, after arriving on scene. 

There were no injuries reported and Red Cross assistance was not needed.  Damage was estimated at $30,000.
