TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A family of three has been displaced from their home after an early morning house fire in the 4200 block of E. Pima Street, according to a Tucson Fire Department release.

There was one person home at the time of the fire, a 49-year-old woman, who woke to 'popping noises' and realized her house was on fire, said the TFD release.

Tucson Fire crews responded promptly, arriving within moments of being dispatched.

Initial reports had the house as vacant, due to several boarded up windows, said TFD officials. But as crews arrived they were told the house was in fact occupied and the only person inside had gotten out safely and was with a Tucson Police officer. 

The officer had been driving by and saw the smoke, according to Tucson Police. The woman had been attempting to get the family dog out, the officer assisted the woman and got the animal out and away from the burning home.

It took crews 23 minutes to put out the fire, according to the TFD release.  No firefighter injuries were reported.

There are no damage estimates at this time and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.  The home did not have working smoke alarms, according to TFD officials.

The Red Cross is assisting the family.
