A family of three has been displaced following a mobile home fire in the 400 block of East Corona Road, according to Capt. Barrett Baker of the Tucson Fire Department. 

The male resident of the home smelled smoke and found it coming from the middle bedroom. He was unable to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher and evacuated the home. The female resident and her baby had already evacuated the residence after they smelled smoke and called 9-1-1. 

The first responding units saw smoke and flames coming from the bedroom window. Firefighters were able to contain the fire under 15 minutes after the first crew arrived on scene. 

No firefighters were injured while extinguishing this fire. 

The three residents of the home, a 19-year-old woman, a 22-year-old man and a 16-month-old boy are going to receive assistance from the Red Cross as the mobile home is unlivable from fire damage. 

The cause of the fire is still to be determined, initial reports indicate the fire started in the middle bedroom of the mobile home. 

The estimate on damages is still to be determined as well.
