APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. -- Nine adults and two children escaped a burning trailer in Apache Junction early Tuesday morning, and while they are safe, they lost everything they own.

It happened at about 2 a.m. just off of Ironwood Drive and McKellips Boulevard.

According to a woman who was inside the home, the smoke detector went off and woke her up.

By the time she got everyone out, the home had burned to the ground.

No injuries were reported.

Investigators are trying to determine how the fire started.

Volunteers with the American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter are helping the people displaced by the fire.
