A woman and child asleep in their home were able to safely escape a house fire in Phoenix, thanks to alert neighbors.
The neighbors saw the smoke from the fire just about noon Friday and were able to knock loudly enough to wake the woman and child from their naps, said Capt. Ruben Saavedra of the Phoenix Fire Department.
Firefighters arrived at the house in the area of 32nd Street and McDowell Road in about three minutes and found smoke coming from the rear of the home, Saavedra said.
Crews quickly contained the fire to an attached storage area in the back and prevented the flames from spreading to the home, Saavedra said.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire was being investigated, Saavedra said.
