The Tucson Fire Department responded to their third fire in six hours Wednesday night.

It happened just before 11 p.m. Wednesday night in the 5100 block of East 22nd Street. TFD says a call was made to 911, reporting fire from the roof of the two story apartment complex.  When crews arrived, they noticed flames were visible from the roof.  Additional crews were called and they were able to quickly put out the flames.

After that, firefighters went inside and found heavy charring of the insulation above the bathroom. They kept searching and found an additional fire in the attic space.   Once they put those flames out, they were able to see that most of the fire damage occurred in the bathroom of the apartment, near the exhaust fan, which the mother stated was on.   

A mother and her two daughters were displaced but the management of the apartment complex is helping them find a place to stay. Still no word on what exactly caused the fire. This case is still under investigation.
