TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Firefighters responded to smoke and flames at a carport in midtown Saturday, according to Tucson Fire Captain Andy Skaggs.

Tucson Firefighters arrived at the scene of a storage unit that was completely engulfed in flames at an apartment complex near the intersection of Tucson Boulevard and Glenn Street. Skaggs said flames were blocking the entry to one unit and a man was trapped inside.

Skaggs said the man had initially left the building safely, but went back inside to get his cat.

Crews were able to remove the man safely. He was taken to the hospital with injuries from the fire. A bystander was also injured while trying to help the resident. That bystander was taken to the hospital as well with injuries. 

Firefighters did not find a cat at the scene.

Skaggs said around 2:50 p.m. that the fire was under control.
