TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - One person has been displaced after an apartment fire Friday morning.
Trish Tracy, a spokesperson with Tucson Fire tells KGUN9 firefighters responded the the 2600 block of North Alvernon Way.
A man heard an alarm sounding in one of the apartments and noticed smoke coming through the cracks of the window of a ground floor unit. He knocked on the front door to alert the occupant, but nobody answered. He immediately called 911, says Tracy.
