Family escapes double house fire in Phoenix

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Firefighters say a family of three escaped without injury after a fire broke out inside their home and spread to a neighbor's home in Phoenix.

According to Capt. Jake Van Hook with the Phoenix Fire Department, the family of three was awoken by a loud "boom" early Monday morning when a fire started inside their home near 36th Street and Campbell.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, the fire spread from the original home to a neighboring home, as well as a car that was parked in the driveway of one of the homes.

Firefighters say the fire was extinguished after it spread to the kitchen, living room, and attic of the first home.

The second home, which is vacant, suffered less damage.

No firefighters were injured.
