Storage shed fire downs power line off Old Nogales Hwy.

TUCSON - Dozens of 911 calls reporting a fire off Old Nogales Highway sent Tucson Firefighters to a fully-involved fire burning two storage sheds, and threatening a nearby mobile home.

Crews responded to the 6000 block of Old Nogales Hwy, focusing on containing the smoke and flames to keep them from spreading to the mobile home. There was one person in the mobile home but they made it out fine.

Captain Barrett Baker with Tucson Fire tells us that a downed power line going into one of the buildings posed a major safety threat, and an officer was on scene to keep firefighters aware of the danger.

The two sheds were completely damaged as were a couple of cars parked close by, but the mobile home was not damaged. No one was hurt, and Red Cross wasn't called.

The cause of the fire is now under investigation.
