TUCSON- Tucson Firefighters responded to two early morning fires Sunday.
Tucson Fire Capt. Chris Jurvig says crews were first dispatched to the 6400 block of South Craycroft Road around 1:30 am, after multiple 9-1-1 calls advised flames were coming from a building.
Upon arrival, crews found the fire to burning in a pile of pallets on the outside of the building.
Jurvig says firefighters were able to stop the fire from spreading to the interior of the building.
The Pima County Health Department was dispatched to the fire, after it was determined the building was used to store food for a local food bank.
According to Jurvig, the second fire occurred around 5:15 a.m. in 1100 block of South Osborne Avenue.
When crews arrived, they found smoke and flames coming out multiple windows in the house.
No occupants were found to live at the house and it was determined to be an abandoned structure.
Both fires were brought under control within ten minutes.
The causes of the fires are under investigation.
