An early morning fire on Saturday has displaced a resident, according to a press release from the Tucson Fire Department. 

Capt. Andrew Skaggs says a car driving by the 5900 block of South Fontana Avenue called authorities after seeing smoke and flames coming from a house. 

Crews responded to the scene at 4:14 a.m. and found fire coming from the kitchen, bedroom and attic of the home. Firefighters were able to contain the majority of damage to these areas. 

No one was home at the time of the fire but a resident has been displaced. 

Investigators determined that the fire started near the roof in the kitchen and bathroom areas. They are still working to determine how the fire started.
