Tucson house fire causes major damage but family escapes injury

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Tucson Fire responded to multiple calls of a house fire on the 3000 block of East Mabel in midtown early Sunday morning.

Video shot by Tucson Firefighters shows flames coming from the roof the house. It took more than 20 firefighters to put out the blaze near Speedway and Country Club.

Firefighters pulled hose lines inside the home to check for anyone inside and found no one inside. However, there was so much smoke coming from the fire inside the house and forced fire crews to cut a hole in the roof to get the smoke out.

Family members we talked with on scene tell Tucson News Now the house was just bought by a young couple with two children. The family of four wasn't home when the fire sparked because they decided to stay over at a relative's house Saturday night.

Fire investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
