All occupants of a home in Sun City West escaped safely after it caught fire, officials said.
Maricpopa County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the house fire around 4:20 a.m. Monday near Beardsley and Old El Mirage roads.
The Arizona Fire & Medical Authority said 4 people exited the home with no injuries.
The home was severely damaged, MCSO said. The AFMA tweeted that the fire was under control but the residents will be displaced.
An official with the AFMA said a neighbor alerted the residents of the fire. It appears to have started in the backyard and extended into the attic.
Crews from Sun City, Surprise, Glendale and Peoria assisted the AFMA.
The fire does not appear to be suspicious and the cause is currently unknown.
