TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A family of four has been displaced after their mobile home was destroyed by an overnight fire on Tucson's south side. 

A woman living in the home, located in the 5200 block of South Campbell Avenue, woke up to their dog barking just before 1 a.m. 

She went to see what the dog was barking at and opened the door to find the carport area of the home was engulfed in flames, according to a news release from the Tucson Fire Department. 

She was able to wake up everyone in the house and everyone got out safely. 

A Tucson Police Department helicopter was flying in the area, and first reported the fire. 

This was the only call that was made reporting the fire.

Nine units consisting of 23 firefighters responded to the scene and put the fire out. 

The fire damaged a car parked in the driveway as well. 

While firefighters were working to extinguish the flames, a propane tank exploded, but no one was injured. 

Red Cross is assisting the family. 

Investigators are now working to determine what caused the fire.
